  • Blizzard for the Northeast begins overnight

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone.  Here’s the latest on our big winter storm that will start overnight into tomorrow morning:

    Winter Storm Warnings are posted from the Midwest to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic as a system from the Midwest combines with a low off the Southeast Coast later today to form a powerful late season Nor-easter.

    The heaviest snow and wind begins overnight across the Mid-Atlantic and then tomorrow morning-midday for the Northeast, as a broad area is expecting 12-24″ of snow, especially where no rain mixes along the coast.

    Along the immediate Northeast and New England coast is also where whiteout conditions are possible on Tuesday.  40-60 mph wind gusts will be widespread and Blizzard Warnings are in effect.

    Coastal flooding will also be a concern with prolonged northeasterly winds.

    We will continue to update you from the Fox News extreme weather center!

  • #Blizzardwatch

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi all!

    Just wanted to give you a heads up we are watching a potential blockbuster storm that will impact the Northeast Monday through Wednesday.  The National Weather Service has already issued blizzard watches for the Tri-state area, and we could have some big snowfall totals.  Nothing is set in stone yet, but if you live in this area–please be weather aware.  More details to come…

  • Severe storms bring tornadoes across the Midwest

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone.  I hope you’re all doing well.  Unfortunately, we’ve got a tornado outbreak occurring across parts of the Mid Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley, and now it’s shifting east.

    We’ve had more than two dozen reports of tornadoes over the last 24 hours.  Strong to severe storms will be possible throughout the day over the Tennessee Valley, Midatlantic and the Northeast up into Southern New England.

    Damaging winds are the main concern but large hail, flooding rainfall and isolated tornadoes are also possible.

    Meanwhile, temperatures will be very warm – record warmth is possible across the east coast as the cold front plows through.

    Be safe all!  We’ll have updates throughout the day from the weather center.

  • More heavy rain for the West Coast, and Best in Show!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!  Happy Wednesday.  If you’re up early, join us for Fox and Friends– I visited the Westminster Kennel Club 141st Best in Show last night, and interviewed the winning dog (and her owner and trainer) Rumor the German Shepherd.  It was so much fun and I can’t wait to take you inside this incredible event.

    Ok – back to weather.   We’ve got storm affecting both coasts over the next few days.  Heavy snow will develop over parts of the Great Lakes and Northeast through Thursday.

    The same storm that brought severe weather across Texas yesterday and the Gulf Coast will threaten parts of Florida and Georgia today:

    Winter weather advisories are posted across the region into New England.

    Meanwhile, the West will get another big round of heavy rain and snow from Washington State down into southern California.

    Several inches of rain will cause flooding concerns along the coast – including the city of Ornoville where we have a dam that’s being watched very carefully for a possible breach.

    We’ll monitor this story over the next few days.  The good news is the drought across the West is being erased, but the flooding, mudslides, rockslide concerns will be ongoing.

    I hope you will join us for Fox and Friends today!  So excited to introduce you to the winning dog Rumor the German Shepherd.

  • Another storm for the Northeast and the Southwest

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.  We have another strong coastal storm bringing significant snow to New England with blizzard conditions in Maine:

    This system is also bringing strong winds to the Mid Atlantic up into the  Northeast affecting the cities of DC, Philadelphia, NYC and Boston with gusts of 60 mph possible.

    Meanwhile, rain and mountain snow is covering the southwest including Arizona and Texas thanks to an upper level low over northern Mexico.

    Winter storm advisories are up in advance of the system, and flooding will be a concern for Texas and the Gulf Coast as the storm moves east this week.

    Here’s a look at your daytime highs today:

    Hope to see you on Fox and Friends starting at 6am!
