  • Happy 4th of July everyone!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    We’re going to be driving back to New York tomorrow, but wanted to wish you all a Happy 4th!

    One of my favorite family summer vacations was to the Kennedy Space Center.  I knew back then that I could be anything that I dreamed of living here.  #ProudAmerican

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.

  • Severe storms, First Day of Summer and Father's Day!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    We’ve got quite a bit of weather to talk about, so let’s get to that first.

    Strong to severe storms are possible across the Northern plains and Mid Mississippi valley as well as parts of the Ohio Valley through the central Appalachians

    Tomorrow we’ll watch the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes:

    And on Tuesday, the threat moves east across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic back into the Ohio Valley:

    The first day of Summer arrived this afternoon, and the temperatures sure do agree!

    The southeast continues to bake this week:

    And Excessive heat warnings continues across the Southwest with highs 109-114, heat indices soaring to 120 degrees!

    Today is Father’s Day, and I feel so lucky to be married to Sean who takes such good care of my boys.  I must’ve done something right to have such an amazing family!

    And I’m also thinking of my own dad who gave me incredible career advice when I was very young.  He said “Janice Anne, find something you most love to do when it comes to work. It will bring you great happiness in life.”

    I know he was proud of all my accomplishments, but thankfully, he was also able to see that the most fulfilling part of my life is being a mother to his grandsons.

    I miss you, Dad. Happy Father’s Day.

    Thanks to all you wonderful Dads out there.  Hope you have a special Day.

  • Triple Crown Winner!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    It was a late night and an early morning, but what a ride it was.  American Pharoah won the Triple Crown at Belmont, and I was there to witness history.  I still can’t believe it.  Here are some of the pics of a day many will  never forget…

  • Heavy rain across the South, #TBT and OpED!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone.  Happy Sunday!

    A lot to blog about today.  Let’s start with weather:

    We had a rough week last week with severe weather.  Devastating tornadoes ripped through the heartland and left so much destruction and, tragically, we lost lives.  Today, we have a risk of strong to severe thunderstorms later this afternoon over parts of the Southern Plains up into the Midwest.  Stronger storms could fire up over south Texas – but we’re not expecting a severe outbreak.  Mainly large hail and damaging winds, so please be safe!

    Heavy rain will fall across the Southern Plains and Deep South. Widespread amounts of 1-3 inches is possible by Tuesday morning with locally heavy rain leading to flooding issues.

    Cooler weather is expected for the Rockies and Great Basin.  Rain and mountain snow showers are expected across the Pacific Northwest.

    And in the good news department, the Northeast is FINALLY feeling like spring this weekend!

    In other news, Yours truly was the focus of the Foxnews Insider’s posts with some of my #throwbackthursday pics.  Take a look HERE

    And, more personally, I wrote an OpEd on Friday focusing in on celebrity weight gain, and how I’ve dealt with my own struggle of being heavy.  It was a tough essay to write because of the shame I’ve felt over the years, but I’ve received so much incredible encouragement, I no longer feel alone in my struggle.  Let me know what you think.  You can go HERE to read it.

    Have a wonderful week.  I’m off to DC for a Women on the Move Luncheon on Wednesday which I will tell you all about.  You can check it out HERE

    Talk to you soon!

  • First snow of the season, Election weather, Halloween fun and extra sleep!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    It’s been a very busy week.  Let’s get to it!

    We’ve got storms on both coasts that will bring rain wind and accumulating snow.  Over a foot of snow has already fallen across the mountains of North Carolina!   Many cities had their earliest snowfall with record breaking low temperatures.

    Wind chills will be in the 20s and 30s overnight with freeze warnings in effect for many southern states.

    A coastal storm off the Northeast will bring strong winds, rain and heavy snow for parts of New England through tomorrow.

    Meanwhile,  across the west, much needed rain and mountain snow will help the drought stricken state of California.

    This storm will be the weather maker next week as it makes its way across the central u.s.

    A look ahead to election day Tuesday, a storm system will bring rain and thunderstorms from the Lower Great Lakes down into Texas.  We’re not looking at severe weather that day, but isolated thunderstorms could delay voters out to the polls. Clouds, rain and drizzle will be in the forecast for the West as well  from Northern California to Washington state.

    And don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight for some extra zzzzzzzzz’s!

    In other news, here’s some fun pictures of my little superheros yesterday, and we had so much fun last week on Fox and Friends weekend dressed up as the Flintstones!
