  • Wintery weather arrives for many!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.   Happy Hump Day!  It’s looking a lot more like winter across parts of the country.

    Snow across the Northern Rockies and interior Northwest will increase in coverage and intensity today and Thursday.

    Winter Storm Watches and Warnings are in effect.

    Winter weather advisories are also up for parts of the Upper Midwest as generally light snow accumulations are expected.

    And looking ahead, Winter Storm Watches are in effect over the highest elevations in Northern California as the season’s first significant winter storm is expected Friday into the weekend.

    Have a great day everyone.

  • Travel delays across the Northeast thanks to a strong coastal storm

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Hope you had a great weekend.   If you live across the Northeast you’re well aware of a strong system bringing heavy rain to the region down into the Mid-Atlantic.

    Heavy rainfall, flash flooding, wind gusts up to 60 mph and coastal flooding will all be possible through the day.

    Colder air behind this storm will bring heavy snow to the central Appalachians.

    Strong winds and snow are also expected across the  northern Plains and Upper Great Lakes.

    In the good news department, we’ll have much quieter weather tomorrow for Halloween for much of the country!

    See you on Fox and Friends!

  • October Snow for the Upper Midwest and a coastal storm for the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy Friday everyone.  We’re watching the snow fall over the Upper Midwest today:

    Highest storm totals will bring 3-6 inches across northern Minnesota:

    Much colder air is moving into the Plains and Midwest behind this system.

    A coastal low is likely to impact the Northeast coast on Sunday into Monday bringing heavy rain, wind, and coastal flooding to the region.

    Tropical moisture will add to the rainfall totals from this system.

    And speaking of tropics, a disturbance in the western Caribbean still could become more organized over the weekend, but regardless of if it becomes a depression or a storm it will spread tropical downpours/flooding from Central America to South Florida.

    Here’s the rest of your Friday forecast:

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

  • Here comes some snow!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    We’ve got a system moving into the Northern Rockies, Northern Plains, and Midwest that will bring colder temperatures and a mix of rain and snow.

    This colder air will spread across the rest of the Plains and Midwest.

    We’ve got many states in a freeze watch/warning:

    Meanwhile, the tropics aren’t done yet.  A disturbance in the western Caribbean may develop late this week, but appears to be mainly a heavy rain/flooding threat for Central America.

    Here’s a look at your forecast today for the rest of the U.S:

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

  • Rain and snow for the Northwest, severe weather across the Plains

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Friday!  Woohoo!

    We’ve got an active weekend ahead in weather – the Northwest will see more rain and snow as another system moves onshore tonight.

    In the good news file, this will move more showers, humidity, and cooler temperatures into Northern California  where we’ve had devastating wildfires the last few weeks.

    Meanwhile, a system moving into the Central Plains will bring the threat for severe weather to the region Saturday.

    Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes are possible. Heavy downpours may also cause flash flooding, so be safe if you live in these areas.

    Here’s a look at the rest of today’s forecast:

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