  • Another summer cool down!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Happy Monday.  We had a busy weekend of weather, and although things are going to calm down a bit in terms of severe weather, a lot of us are going to feel another summer cool off this week!

    For today, there’s the risk of strong to severe storms across northern New England with possible damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes.  Heavy rain could cause some flooding issues:

    This strong July cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms along and ahead of the boundary. Heat advisories are in place for areas along the Gulf and Southeat Coast.

    And this next cool, dry airmass has moved into the Midwest with overnight lows in the 50s and 60s!  Some record lows are possible over the Ohio Valley.

    The “monsoon” season is bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Southwest and Rockies.   We had injuries and one death due to lightning off the coast of Southern California yesterday with more dangerous lightning possible today.

    Tomorrow I’m going to be out in Far Rockaway, Queens doing reports about how to get prepared for hurricane season.  150 kids are going to come out for a “PREP RALLY” to “Get Ready Get Safe” for the next possible storm.  You can visit their website here:

    I’ll see you all then!


  • Saturday and Sunday severe weather outlook

    Hi all

    Thanks for being patient with me this week.  I know there’s been a few days without any new blog entries.  Yesterday our  family went to Atlantic Beach to visit our friends who have a home out there.  It’s only 30 minutes from where we live, but it is one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever been to.  Here’s a couple of pictures from our outing:

    It really was like therapy being out there so close to the Ocean.  I could listen to the waves all day long…

    In weather news, there’s a lot going on this weekend.  Severe storms will develop across the Midwest, then move into the Ohio Valley.  Damaging winds and hail are the primary concerns, however tornadoes will also be possible.  Here’s the area of concern:

    The threat will continue overnight, then redevelop Sunday from the eastern Ohio Valley to the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

    It’s another  hot, humid afternoon across the Plains, with heat indices in the 100-110 degree range.

    Some relief is on the way this week as a cooler air mass will begin moves in starting Sunday.  Look at these temperatures!

    The hot, dry conditions will persist over the West with dozens of wildfires burning.  Unfortunately, this is the weather pattern over the next week with ongoing fire danger…

    Hope you’re all doing well.  I recorded the sound of the waves yesterday, so I think I might have to put it on a loop to listen to it here at work!  :)
