  • A mild weekend for many and Christmas party pictures!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning all!

    I have to share some pictures from Thursday night’s White House Christmas Party.  My sweet friend Shannon Bream asked me to be her date (how lucky am I?!)

    I travelled to D.C. for a once in a lifetime event.  Every room was decorated beautifully with gorgeous Christmas trees everywhere.

    There were many of our Fox Family there, and it was such a happy, fun night.   I felt very fortunate to be a part of such a special event.

    You can check out more pictures on my Facebook page!

    And now, it’s back to reality, and we have some weather to discuss:

    There’s a strong storm across the Southern Rockies that will move into the Central Plains and Mid-Mississippi Valley this weekend bringing heavy rain, snow and a chance of severe storms.

    Heavy rain is possible from the Southern Plains Lower Mississippi Valley up into the Upper Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes.  More heavy rain will cause flooding concerns for the Pacific Northwest and Northern California as a new storm system moves in while heavy snow will pile up over the Cascades and Sierra Range.

    Meanwhile, two thirds of the country will be enjoying temperatures up to 30 degrees above average this weekend feeling more like fall than winter.

    What do you guys think of this warm weather?  Do you love it or are you all wishing for a white Christmas?

    Have a wonderful weekend everyone.


  • Dear Ladies of the View...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.

    I promise a second post later today about what’s going on in the weather, but first I wanted to write something a little more personal.

    Earlier this week, the women on TV show “The View” thought they’d make some jokes about nurses after Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson (who is a nurse) talked about an Alzheimer’s patient she cared for during the Miss America pageant.

    There was a huge backlash, and sponsors of the View even pulled out in response.

    This wonderful woman was my nurse 10 years ago when I was first diagnosed with MS.  She held my hand during some very dark moments and gave me hope when I needed it the most.

    We must honor and respect these wonderful people.  Jennifer is my angel, and I am so blessed to call her my friend.


  • Never Forget...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone

    Another anniversary is upon us.  I wanted to post a few photos in honor of some of the men we lost 14 years ago.  The first picture was taken for a Vanity Fair article written by the late David Halberstam called “Of Fire and Men”.  This was my husband Sean’s firehouse 40/35 on the Upper West Side.  Sean is in the far right hand corner.

    The article was then turned into a book called Firehouse which is a beautiful testament to the 12 brave, good men who gave up their lives saving others that day.

    We will never forget.  God Bless the families of those who we lost September 11th, 2001.


  • Tuesday weather, and here comes Freddy!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July.   We had a great trip back to Canada last week, and a wonderful holiday weekend.

    A quick peak at the Nation’s weather picture, there’s a few strong storms are possible today across the Ohio River Valley along a cold front.  Hail and damaging wind gusts are the primary concerns.

    Unfortunately, there’s more rain from Texas through Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and into Illinois where flash flooding is possible.

    If only we could get some of that moisture into the Southwest and California!

    Temperatures from the Central Plains to the Midwest will be unseasonable cool today.

    Afternoon highs will be 10 to 25 degrees below average, and will slowly moderate to near average by Friday.

    And, I’m excited to announce that next week my new Freddy the Frogcaster book comes out!  In this book, Freddy helps his town prepare in advance of a hurricane.    Did you know Freddy is also now a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador for NOAA?     I’m proud to say he is helping “make the nation more ready, responsive, and resilient against extreme weather”   I’m very excited to share this new adventure with kids, parents and teachers.  Thank YOU for all your support on the blog!
