  • Blizzard conditions across the West and severe weather tomorrow

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone

    We’ve got a big weather system unfolding across the West that will bring snow, possible blizzard conditions and severe storms tomorrow.  Here’s the breakdown:

    A system across the West is spreading rain and snow across much of the region.  Over a foot of snow is possible across higher elevations of Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming.  Watches and warnings are up:

    Blizzard conditions may also develop (the red shaded area on the map) from eastern Colorado into western Kansas and southwestern Nebraska as 2-6″ of snow combines with wind gusts to 60mph.  As this system moves eastward, severe storms will develop across the eastern Plains and Mid-Mississippi River Valley on Wednesday:

    Damaging winds and large hail are likely, with  tornadoes also  possible.

    And, Tropical Storm Kate is northeast of the Bahamas, and will not impact the U.S. or Bermuda as it moves into the open Atlantic.

    Hope your week is going well so far.  Be safe if you live in the areas affected by this serious storm system.


  • Rain and snow for the West

    Hi All!

    We had a great time in DFW for the MS Society’s Leadership Conference this week.  I also got to visit our affiliate Good Day Fox 4 and do an interview with Lauren Przbyl on their morning show.  They made me feel right at home.

    Back to work with rain in the forecast from the Northwest down into Southern California and then into the Rockies and High Plains Monday.  Snow will develop over the higher elevations with the heaviest across the Northern Rockies and the Sierra Range:

    A frontal boundary is moving slowly through the Southeast bringing the chance of showers and thunderstorms with the heaviest rainfall expected from southeast Louisiana to southwest Georgia. 1 to 2 inches of rainfall is expected with locally heavier amounts possible.

    And temperatures are 10-20 degrees above average across the Plains today:

    Not a bad day for much of the U.S. as we start the new workweek.

    Hope you all had a great weekend.


  • Texas here I come!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    It’s been a crazy last few weeks of activities.  I’m off to Fort Worth, Texas this week to emcee the 2015 MS Society Leadership Conference.   I’ll be back Sunday with an update and some pictures.  You can follow me on Facebook twitter or Instagram for more details too.

    Here’s a picture from a few weeks ago at the CanDoMS event here in NYC.

    Have a great rest of the week, and I’ll talk to you Sunday.


  • More heavy rain for Texas

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!  We had a great time in our costumes roaming around the neighborhood.  Here’s a picture of my two little superheros (and a scary witch you may  recognize!)

    It’s another busy weekend of weather news.  The area of low pressure that brought more heavy rain across Texas and the Gulf Coast states continues across the lower MS Valley and Deep South.

    Showers and thunderstorms will persist across this area moving into the Mid Atlantic tomorrow.  We could see some isolated severe storms over this region:

    Across the west, several storms will make their way inland this week.

    Snow will fall across the Higher Elevations of the Sierras, Northern Cascades and Northern Rockies. Flash flooding will be possible for western Washington and northwest Oregon through Monday.

    Finally, Cyclone Chapala became the strongest tropical system so far south in the Arabian Sea on record and may make an extremely rare landfall at hurricane strength along the coast of Yemen Monday or Tuesday.

    This region could get a year’s worth of rainfall in just a matter of hours which could be devastating and catastrophic.

    We’ll keep you updated.
