  • First Big Winter storm shaping up!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    ICYMI, I have joined Fox and Friends FULL TIME Monday through Friday which I am so thrilled about.  I absolutely adore Ainsley, Brian and Steve and everyone that works behind the scenes for that amazing show. It is a dream come true.  I hope you will join us every morning for your news of the day, weather and a plenty of fun.

    There is also some interesting news on the weather front.  Our first big winter storm of the season is happening right now across the Rockies – eventually moving across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest Thursday-Friday.

    Along with snow, strong winds will be problematic tomorrow and Friday.  Winter Storm Watches and Blizzard Watches are posted.

    Meanwhile, very dry conditions will continue into next week across the South where 30+ wildfires are burning.

    Air quality across the region remains poor due to smoke.  And we’re not expecting much rain in the next five days:

    And for now, temperatures remain remarkable warm across the Central U.S so enjoy it while you can, because it appears there are some changes underway!

    Have a great day everyone!

  • Election Weather: No excuse not to vote!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    It’s finally here.  Election Day.  And even Mother Nature wants you to get out there and cast your ballot.  We don’t have any major storms or SNOW today to delay travelers or keep people indoors.

    There is a slow moving front that will bring some rain and perhaps an isolated thunderstorms from the Great Lakes down through the Mid Mississippi Valley into the Central Gulf Coast, but we’re not expecting any severe weather today.   And to make it even easier, temperatures will be 15-25 degrees for much of the country!

    Happy Election Day!


  • An early look at your Election Tuesday forecast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  We have another quiet forecast as we head into the weekend and into election week.

    Rain and very isolated thunderstorms are possible from the MidAtlantic down into southeast Florida.  A few showers are possible across the Northeast.

    The unsettled weather continues across the Northwest and the Southwest this weekend with snow developing across the Central Rockies.

    Temperatures will be 10 to 25 degrees above average over the Plains and across the Mississippi Valley.

    A look ahead: No major storms are expected for Election Day.

    Much of the United States will be dry with above-average temperatures.

    At the moment, the best chance of rain appears to be in the south-central states and Pacific Northwest.

    Have a great weekend everyone!


  • Stormy weekend for the West

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I’m in for Rick on Fox and Friends weekend.  Hope you will tune in tomorrow for a Halloween parade!

    In the meantime, let’s check out the forecast…

    The West will be into a wet stormy pattern over the next few days as a series of systems move onshore and across the Intermountain West.

    Periods of heavy rain are possible across parts of Northern California with the risk of flash flooding.  Higher elevation snow will develop over the Sierra and the Northern Rockies through Sunday.

    A system moving across the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes will bring widespread rain and a mix of snow over Upstate New York and Maine.

    Meanwhile, record highs are possible over the central U.S.  this weekend with temperatures well above average for millions of folks.

    Here’s a look ahead to your trick or treat forecast:

    Hope you’ll join us tomorrow!
