  • Epic Snowstorm for the Northeast Monday-Wednesday

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone

    There is big weather news this week for the Northeast.  We have a clipper system moving across the Ohio valley will turn into a very strong coastal storm Monday-Wednesday for the 1-95 corridor.

    2-6 inches of snow will fall over the Ohio Valley today, and then once the system reaches the Atlantic coast, the moisture will increase, the storm will strengthen and give us the potential for a substantial snowstorm/blizzard for the  Northeast.

    Right now,  it’s a safe bet we’ll see  4-8 inches over Maryland into Southern PA while a swath of 6-12 + will accumulate from New Jersey to eastern Massachusetts.   Some computer models are suggesting up to 18+  for parts of NJ – New York, CT, Massachusetts including New York City.  Blizzard watches are in place for Long Island up into eastern CT, RI and MA.

    The snow will start Monday morning and continue into Tuesday and Wednesday for New England.   Some areas could see 30 inches of snow with winds of over 50 mph.

    Stay tuned!

    Meanwhile, it’s also worth reporting that the Central U.S will be enjoying warmer than average temperatures (20-30 degrees above average!)


  • A one-two punch for the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hello everyone!

    We’ve got an interesting winter storm set up for the Northeast coast over the next couple of days. Our first storm is still bringing a mix of wintry weather including freezing rain and snow.

    Some areas could get close to a foot before the system exits on Sunday.

    We’ll then be watching another quick moving storm across the Midwest and Midatlantic through Monday.

    This storm could be much more intense , and bears watching for major travel disruptions.

    Meanwhile, the The central U.S. continues to enjoy warmer than average temperatures.  In some cases, highs will be 20-30 degrees above average:

    I’ll have another update tomorrow for the latest on the Sunday/Monday winter storm!  Be safe everyone.


  • Snow deficit across the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    We had a terrible day on the roads yesterday across the Northeast with hundreds of accidents due to freezing rain and wintry weather.  I suppose it could’ve been a lot worse if people were trying to travel on a workday!

    Thankfully, we have a quiet next few days across the U.S.   The Northeast will have improving weather as the Coastal storm exits with more seasonal highs, however, we’re watching a new system move in on Wednesday which could give us a quick shot of snow:

    We haven’t had a lot of snow this year, and many big cities are experiencing a snow “deficit”

    There’s a lot more winter to get through, so stay tuned!

    Meanwhile, folks across the Central U.S and Deep south are enjoying warmer than average temperatures today!

    Elsewhere across the country, a  cold front will bring showers and some mountain snow to the Northwest and Rockies with clearing skies and average temperatures coming Tuesday.

    Hope you all had a great weekend!


  • Warm up for the Central U.S, coastal storm Sunday

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy weekend everyone!

    I’m here early for Fox and Friends weekend tomorrow and the following weekend as well, so tune in and say Hello!  I met a lot of new friends this morning on the Plaza despite the CH-CH-CH-illy temperatures!

    In the good news department, much of the country is going to enjoy a nice warm up!

    We’ve got a series of storms moving onshore across the Pacific Northwest bringing rain and mountain snow, and then spreading east over the Northern Rockies.

    A developing storm will bring mainly rain for the Northeast Sunday into Monday with some interior snow.  Windy and cooler temps move in behind it.

    Meanwhile, weather across the Philippines will be windy and wet as the weakening typhoon moves across land.   Rain and winds over 40 mph is possible for Pope’s mass at Manila park Sunday.

    Those are your weather headlines for now.  I’ll check in again tomorrow!


  • Icy start to the day for the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning!

    If you live across the Eastern third of the country, it was a nasty ride into work.

    A cold front will continue to bring a threat of freezing rain from the central Appalachians to southern New England.

    Snow will fall over the interior northeast and Northern New England, and mainly all rain for the Southeast and Midatlantic.   And then, colder air will move in after the system moves off shore.

    And across the West, a storm pushing into the Southwest will bring moderate to heavy snow over the four corners:

    This weather is making me sleepy…I can see why everyone wants to fly to somewhere warm right around now!

    Be safe everyone
