  • Storms move into the Northeast and a peek at Memorial Day

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    It’s a another wet day across the Northeast and the MidAtlantic:

    A system that brought over a dozen tornadoes across the southeast will now bring the risk of rain with a few embedded thunderstorms.

    Tomorrow the risk will be over the Central High Plains as a new storm emerges from the Rockies

    Meanwhile, strong winds and very low humidity will create dangerous fire weather conditions in parts of the Desert Southwest and southern High Plains:

    Here’s a look at your highs today:

    And a quick peek ahead to Memorial Day, we have a chance for showers and storms again for the eastern third of the country:

    Have a great day everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Heavy rain and the threat for severe storms for the Gulf Coast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.   We had a beautiful few days in the Northeast.  This week brings unsettled and cooler weather for many.  Wet weather will be the story for the South and Gulf Coast.

    Flash flooding will be a concern for several states:

    A slight risk for severe storms will bring the threat for hail and damaging winds and an isolated tornado:

    Out west, very warm temperatures will start the week. As temperatures rise, snow melt and flooding will be a threat.

    Have a great Monday everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Severe storms, snow and heavy rain for the Plains

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Friday.  We’ve had a busy week in the weather department with dozens of tornado reports, severe storms and even snow across the mountains.

    More of the same is expected from the South/Central Plains into the Middle Mississippi Valley.

    Very heavy rains associated with these storms may produce localized flash flooding especially over regions that have seen record breaking rain this spring:

    Along the front range, heavy snows will continue with some areas receiving 2-4 feet!

    Have a great weekend everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Severe storms strike the Central U.S. and a heat wave for the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good Wednesday Morning everyone!

    It was a destructive day across the central U.S. yesterday with over a dozen tornadoes and over a hundred storm reports:

    More severe weather is expected for the Lower Mississippi Valley and portions of the Upper Midwest. Some of these storms may contain heavy rainfall capable of producing flash flooding.

    In the west, unusually cool and wet weather with snow over the higher elevations will be ongoing. Winter weather advisories are up for the Rockies with some areas seeing over two feet of snow!

    And the heat is on for the Northeast with the potential for record heat over the next couple of days:

    The warm temperatures will subside by the end of the week with more seasonal highs pushing in over the weekend.

    Have a great day, everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Severe storms for the Plains, a warm up for the Northeast?

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning all!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Mother’s Day in our house was fantastic.  My dream of staying in bed most of the day came true with school-made gifts and chocolate cake.  It was wonderful.

    Out the window,  what’s left of our coastal storm is still lingering over New England, and we’ve got showers and thunderstorms from the northern Plains to the Upper Great Lakes.

    Strong thunderstorms, with large hail and damaging wind gusts are possible from west Texas to west Kansas. High fire danger continues in the Desert Southwest and Florida.

    We’re going to see heavy rain over the Central U.S. this week and heavy snow across the Rockies:

    Temperatures will soar across the Plains and Southeast.

    Some of those warm temperatures will move into the Northeast this week which I think will make a lot of us happy!

    Have a great Monday everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!
