    Good morning everyone

    I’m doing Fox and Friends weekend today and tomorrow.  Hope you’ll join me.  We had so much fun today.  Check out my adventures on Facebook and Twitter.  We also went to see Gretchen Carlson’s movie Persecuted last night!  Maureen Walsh is one of our amazing makeup artists here at Fox – and she did Gretchen’s makeup for the movie!

    Will check in again tomorrow when I have a little more time!

    Enjoy this glorious weekend!

  • Severe threat rolls into the Northeast this afternoon

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    After a marathon week of weather coverage, I’m going to be taking some time off starting tomorrow!  I will try to check in and make sure you’ve got a couple of OPEN BLOGS so you can all chat with one another.   I’m going to be spending some quality time with the family in the Poconos!

    In the meantime, there’s a few things going on today including the risk of severe weather moving into the eastern third of the country.   Damaging winds and hail are the primary threats, however a few isolated tornadoes are possible.  The storm prediction center has put out a moderate risk for strong winds, hail and possible tornadoes over the interior Northeast:

    It will be warm and humid for much of the country:

    Over the Pacific Northwest, afternoon highs that are 5-15 degrees above average will combine with isolated dry thunderstorms to keep the fire danger elevated.

    And Typhoon Neoguri is slowly weakening, but will continue impacting Japan over the next few days.

    In addition to wind damage, heavy rain will also cause localized flooding as it moves toward the mainland tomorrow.

    Have a great rest of the weekend everyone.  If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook I’ll be posting pictures of my family adventures.  Talk to you next week!

  • Dangerous Typhoon in the Western Pacific

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone

    Taking a look at today’s weather, we have a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms over the Mid and Upper Mississippi Valley into the Western Great Lakes.  Damaging winds, large hail will be the main threat with an isolated tornado possible.

    And here’s a look at tomorrow’s risk:

    “Monsoonal” moisture is working its way into the southwest bringing some pop up thunderstorms triggering some possible heavy rain and gusty winds.

    And we are tracking a dangerous typhoon in the Western Pacific that is ramping up with winds of over 140 mph, and strengthening.   The system is threatening to come very close to Okinawa and other parts of Japan and East Asia later this week.

    I’ll have another update first thing Monday morning.
