    Hi everyone

    I am wrapping up marathon coverage of Hurricane Arthur this morning.  I’ll be back in tomorrow for Fox and Friends weekend.  Tune in if you can…and have a wonderful long weekend.  Happy 4th of July!


  • Hurricane Arthur?

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    It’s going to be a busy next few days here in the Weather Center.  We’re tracking Arthur which is forecast to become a hurricane in the next day or so.

    And the worst part is this system is going to bring some nasty weather especially across the Outer Banks 4th of July.  Here’s the the latest track:

    One of the recent computer models making a possible landfall over Cape Hatteras:

    Water temperatures are plenty warm ahead of the storm, so strengthening up to a hurricane is still probable:

    The good news is this storm will be out of the way by the weekend.  We’re still going to see some coastal effects – storm surge, flooding, beach erosion etc.

    And the cold front that will eventually turn this system off-shore could bring some nasty weather across the Northeast today including some of our big cites this afternoon/evening, so be cautious if you live in these areas.

    I’ll keep you updated tomorrow if and when the track changes and the possible impacts as we get closer to the long weekend.  Be safe all!


  • Severe weather and tropical development for the 4th of July?

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Another busy week ahead in the weather department.   We’re watching the threat for strong to severe storms across the Plains and Midwest with a focus on parts of Iowa, Northern Missouri, Southern Wisconsin, Northern and Central Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.  Large hail, damaging winds and strong isolated tornadoes are possible:

    And we’re also focusing on a developing tropical system that could dampen (or soak) some plans this 4th of July…

    Hurricane Hunters are flying in to investigate this disturbance this afternoon, and we’ll have a better handle on the exact track and strength this time tomorrow afternoon.

    One computer model is predicting a pretty nasty day for the Carolina/Midatlantic Coast.  This is just one model – so don’t take it as gospel.  We’ll keep an eye on it…

    Meanwhile, it’s feeling a lot like summer for much of the country!  I feel an ice cream break coming on….

    Stay tuned everyone!


  • Severe storms this weekend and the tropics!

    Hi everyone!

    Hope you’re weekend is going well so far.  We’re watching the threat for strong to severe storms over the next several days.  This is the area of concern this afternoon/tonight:

    Tomorrow we’re looking at a higher risk of severe weather including tornadoes for parts of Nebraska and Iowa

    And Monday there’s a more widespread risk including many more big cities:

    We’re also watching the tropics for an area of concern off the Southeast Coast:

    Not expecting a hurricane to form, but a depression is possible, and since it is close the U.S, we’ll keep an eye on it.

    This is our 2014 list of names:

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and if you happen to be up early for Fox and Friends, I’ll be in for Rick, so come join us for breakfast!
