    Hi All!

    Thought I’d post an open blog for chatting.  Did you watch the GOP Debates last night?  What did you think?

    Talk to you this weekend!


  • Severe storms, wildfires and flooding

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hello everyone!

    How’s your week so far?   We have a few weather stories we are watching today across the country.  Strong storms are possible along the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast coasts, as well as from the Mid-Mississippi River Valley back into the Plains.  Damaging winds and hail are the primary concerns, but an isolated tornado is possible.

    Flooding has been an ongoing issue across Florida with a frontal boundary and a well defined area of low pressure.  Some of the rainfall they’ve received is comparable to a tropical storm!

    Wildfires across the West have been a major concern and with the warm temperatures and dry conditions, the situation hasn’t gotten much better.

    In the Central Pacific, the forecast for Tropical Storm Guillermo will take it just north of the Hawaiian Islands Wednesday and Thursday as a weakening storm.

    Rainfall of up to 7″ may cause mudslides and flash flooding.  Heavy surf will also be a beach threat.  Tropical Storm Watches are up from the Big Island to Maui.

    I will check in again later this week.  Will you all be watching the debates Thursday night?  Must-see TV!


  • The Northwest heats up again

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Hope your weekend is going well.  Can you believe it’s August already?  This summer has flown by, but we still have some beach weather to go!

    In today’s weather, storms continue across the Gulf Coast, Florida and the Southeast thanks in part to a weak stationary front over the area.

    Showers and thunderstorms across the Southwest will bring the risk for flooding

    Heat and dry weather continues for Northern California, Oregon and Washington.

    A little relief will come next week with a cold front pushing in, but for now, the wildfires are spreading putting residents and firefighters in extreme danger

    Showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast across parts of the Midwest and Great Lakes with some storms reaching severe limits.  Large hail damaging winds and tornadoes will be possible through tonight.

    Tomorrow the line of storms will move east:

    Have a great Sunday!  Talk to you next week.


  • Hot! Hot! Hot!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone

    Thanks for bearing with me with the blog.  I know posts have been sporadic.  Freddy has taken up a lot of my time lately…but I’m back!

    Here’s one of my favorite pictures of Freddy and the gals from #Outnumbered #oneluckyfrog

    The big weather story is the heat for two thirds of the country.  Hot temperatures combined with humidity will continue across the Southern Plains.  Heat  Advisories and Excessive Heat Warnings are in effect for over a dozen states:

    Meanwhile, as the rest of the country bakes, cool unsettled weather settles in for the Pacific Northwest and Northern Plains.  Temperatures will be 15-25 degrees below average.

    Hope you’re all doing great.  The blog will be updated a little more frequently now that I’m back on my normal schedule!


  • Cooking with Friends: Pasta Barnych

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    We’ve got a pretty quiet weekend in weather.  It’s still very hot over the southern plains and lower Mississippi Valley, while a cool down moves into the Western U.S.

    Heavy rain will continue in Florida, and we’ll have to watch the Eastern Atlantic for possible tropical development courtesy of a stalled front that could spawn a system off the coast later this week.

    In other news, my husband and I were invited on Fox and Friends “Cooking with friends” segment last week.  Sean was so nervous, but I he did so well, I wanted to share it with all of you:

    And by the way, the recipe is marvelous, and you can find it here:

    Have a great weekend everyone!
