  • Happy Monday!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.   Back from a great vacation up North.  I’ve posted plenty of pictures on Instagram, twitter and Facebook if you want to check it out.  I must admit I didn’t know where I was when the alarm went off this morning!

    Back to it –  we’ve got the risk for strong to severe thunderstorms from the Northern Rockies across the Central Plains into the Ohio Valley.

    Damaging winds, large hail, heavy rain, and flooding will also be possible.

    Meanwhile, it will be hot across the Plains today with heat indices well above 100 degrees.

    Persistent hot and dry conditions will also worsen ongoing wildfire activity in the West.

    We’ll see rain across some of the areas affected by wildfires, but not across the immediate coast.

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

  • Severe storms for the Midwest, Fire danger across the West

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!    Happy Wednesday.

    We’ve got some active weather across the country as we get closer to the weekend.   Strong to severe thunderstorms and heavy rain will be possible from the  plains to the Midwest today and tomorrow.

    Large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be a risk.

    Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue along the Gulf Coast and parts of the SE.

    And warm temperatures and dry conditions will bring the  risk for high fire danger across the west.

    Have a great day everyone.  I’m going to be taking some time off for the holiday weekend, so the blog will be quiet, but I’ll be back after the 4th!

    See you on Fox and Friends.

  • Heat relaxes across the West, cooler air for the Midwest...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!   How was your weekend?  We had a spectacular one here in the Northeast once the showers and thunderstorms cleared out Saturday morning.

    A fairly quiet start to the workweek with a few things we’re watching.  Temperatures will remain above normal today for much of the West, but a cooling trend is on the way this week.

    Showers and thunderstorms will pop up across parts of Texas and New Mexico.

    Tomorrow the threat for severe storms will move into the Northern Plains.   And we’re in for a refreshing start the week across the Midwest and Northeast with less humidity and cooler air moving in.

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

  • What's left of Cindy produces heavy rain for millions.

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!  Happy Friday.  We’ve got our summer concert series happening today on Fox and Friends with Gavin DeGraw.  I hope you will join us.  The weather here in New York is warm and humid, but the rain should stay away for the concert.

    As for the rest of the country, the remnants of tropical storm Cindy will continue moving north-northeast.

    A cold front moving eastward will meet up with moisture from Cindy to produce heavy rains and the potential for flash flooding along a broad swath from the Gulf Coast into the Middle Atlantic:

    Meanwhile, the heat continues to be a big story across the southwest through California and up into the Pacific Northwest,  Heat advisories are up for the weekend:

    Here’s a look at your Friday forecast across the U.S:

    Happy weekend everyone!

  • Tropical Storm Cindy and Dangerous heat in the Southwest

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    A couple of big weather stories to cover this morning – first up:  Tropical Storm Cindy is slowly moving northward  towards the Gulf Coast.

    Very heavy rain will be the biggest story out of Cindy with a widespread swath of 6 to 9 inches, with isolated amounts of 12 inches.

    This will bring potentially life threatening floods along the central Gulf Coast, so residents are urged to stay informed and prepared.

    Meanwhile,  Dangerous heat will continue across much of California and the Desert Southwest.

    Here’s a look at your National forecast:

    Summer arrived last night, so we will be celebrating on Fox and Friends with ice cream, doggie pools and I get to find out where I came from!  My Heritage will be in studio to give me my DNA results this morning so I hope you will tune in.  I’m nervously excited!

    See you soon!
