  • Hurricane Katrina: 10 years later live panel with AMS

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I’m off to Raleigh for the 43rd Conference on Broadcast Meteorology for the American Meteorological Society.  I’ll be moderating a panel of experts about what we’ve learned 10 years later after Hurricane Katrina devastated parts of the Gulf Coast.  Here’s a sample of what we’ll be talking about:

    I’d love to have you join us Wednesday June 10th at 4:30 pm ET.  For details, you can click HERE

    Talk to you later this week,


  • Tom Brokaw explains Canada...

    Hi everyone!

    My mother forwarded this video to me, and I have to say Mr.  Browkaw does an outstanding job describing my homeland in 6 minutes! :)

  • New storm will cause problems coast to coast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Well, the questions have started here!  “When is it coming?  How much snow?”  Yes, we have a new storm that could bring another nor’easter and disruptive travel across the 1-95 corridor Monday into Tuesday.  The storm is going to originate in the west bringing more wet weather to the west coast, and more fears of flooding and mudslides for southern California.  Over the weekend, the storm will travel across the plains, with plenty of Gulf moisture in play.  Snow, sleet, freezing rain and heavy rain will be the story as this system travels eastward.  And then Monday into Tuesday, a secondary low will spin off-shore, and be in play for the Northeast early next week.  Something we need to watch very carefully obviously.  And looking even further out, another potentially stronger storm could also be looming late next week bringing snow to the deep south and possibly a nasty snowstorm to the northeast.    Not fun news, I’m afraid.

    Tomorrow we’re headed to Matthew’s BFF’s birthday party in the City!  Matthew and his buddy are almost the same age, and used to play together on a regular basis until we moved out to the ‘burbs.  I’m so excited to get them back together again!  Sounds like there will be some food and beverages for the mommies and daddies as well which I am very happy about! ;)

    I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I’ll keep you posted on the upcoming storms if there’s any breaking news…

    And in the “awesome u-tube video” file, watch this, and make sure you’ve got the volume up!


  • Foxcaster Freddie's Debut on America Live!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    A lot of people have asked about Foxcaster Freddie!  Here’s his debut on Megyn’s new show!  I think he may be back by popular demand in the Fox News Weather Center!  (And it certainly looks like his Groundhog Day forecast of “No spring for you!” is correct!)

  • Big Holiday Weekend!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    A lot of folks are getting set for the big 4th of July weekend…lots of people have tomorrow off, and of course everyone is hoping for some nice BBQ and weather for fireworks! 

    It looks like the northeast will finally get a break from the unsettled weather, but not today!  It’s pouring rain across much of New England right now, and we could see the threat for severe weather throughout the day with mainly hail and strong winds,  and flood advisories are up from New Jersey to Maine.

    Meanwhile, the heat is the story for the West including Washington and Oregon with highs in the 90s over the weekend.

    We could see showers and or thunderstorms across the Northern Plains, the Gulf Coast and Florida throughout the day today.

    Had a great day off yesterday with my little one.    We’ve been feeding him oatmeal for a couple of weeks now, so I thought I would try something a little different yesterday…GREEN BEANS!  That was a mistake!  He was excited to see the little spoon out, and when I put him in his little chair, he was clearly looking forward to eating…but when I put the green mush in his mouth, his expression was that of pure disgust!  His little face went from happy to “What on earth did you just put in my mouth, mom???”    I had heard from other moms that it’s better to start with vegetables, and then give fruits later on because if you start with fruits, they will never eat the veggies…but at this rate,  green beans are off the menu!  Thankfully he forgot about the beans, and ate the oatmeal like a champ before going to bed last night.

    Anyhow, I will post a 4th of July Forecast later on today across the U.S., and I’m working tomorrow as well as Saturday, so I’ll check back frequently.  If you guys take any pictures this weekend, please pass them along so I can post them here!  

    I also wanted to let you know about the FOX News Support our Troops Facebook page that now has a video tribute to our troops.  Here’s the link to the video, and let me know what you think! 

    Talk to you soon!
