  • Southern snow and ice and the West gets hit hard

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Happy weekend.  There is a lot of weather happening over the next few days, so let’s get to it!

    A storm system bringing mainly light snow is exiting the Northeast this morning, but a more dangerous storm is getting its act together down south with heavy snow and ice for areas that don’t typically get a lot of winter weather.

    Winter storm warnings are in place from Atlanta up into the Midatlantic including the Atlanta area where people are being told to have emergency supplies at the ready over the weekend.

    Meanwhile, freezing temperatures have moved as far south as the Gulf Coast:

    And more heavy rain and feet of snow are expected across the West.  Flash flooding will be a big concern through the weekend.

    Be safe everyone!  Have a wonderful weekend.


  • Snow/Ice for the South, more rain for California

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    Boy there is plenty happening in weather this week…

    An unsettled weather pattern has set up across the U.S bringing freezing temperatures as far south as the Gulf Coast — and a storm track that could bring snow and ice for areas not accustomed to winter weather!

    Check out the winter storm watches in Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas.  Some of the forecast models are showing some big snow numbers in North Carolina!

    Meanwhile, heavy rain and snow continues to move into the west with the threat for flash flooding across California.

    Lake effect snow will also crank up and we’ll have to watch the east coast for a couple of storms coming close to the coast through the weekend.  Plus with all that cold air in place, it’s going to feel like winter for much of the country!

    I’ll have another update tomorrow!

    Stay tuned…


  • Severe weather outbreak hits the South

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.   Unfortunately we’re starting the New Year off with several weather related deaths due to a powerful storm that moved across the South yesterday.  Over a dozen tornadoes were reported with over 150 wind reports:

    The system is weakening, but will bring heavy rain over the MidAtlantic and Northeast.  Ice and snow could be a problem for New England as the system exits.

    Meanwhile, the other story we’re watching involves another arctic cold front that will cause temperatures to drop quickly over the next few days across much of the country.

    And the West is once again seeing heavy  coastal rain and mountain snow through Thursday.

    Hope your week is off to a smooth start.  Happy 2017!  Be safe everyone.


  • New Years Eve forecast!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I hope you’ll join us on Fox and Friends this morning.  We’ve got tons of fun on the way with National Bacon Day and they are sending me on location to Carnegie Deli for its last official day here in the city.

    Taking a look at our weather today through the weekend,  a winter storm is exiting New England but strong winds will bring issues with blowing snow and lake effect snow as well today and heading into the weekend.

    Showers and thunderstorms are also possible along the central Gulf Coast while temperatures will be seasonal for much of the country heading into New Years weekend.

    As for New Years weekend, weather conditions should be pretty calm for much of the country.

    A front moving over the eastern half of the country will bring some rain and snow, but all and all we’re not looking at a cold air outbreak or any major storms to impact celebrations including Times Square in NYC!

    Have a great weekend everyone!  See you in 2017!


  • Coastal storm to end 2016

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!  We are ending the year with a coastal storm bringing heavy snow to Upstate New York and interior New England through Friday.

    Storm total accumulations of a foot or more are possible from the Adirondacks to western Maine

    Gusty winds will also accompany the storm making travel across much of the region hazardous and difficult.

    Meanwhile across the rest of the country, showers and thunderstorms will pop up from the Deep south to the Midatlantic.  And the Northwest remains active with another round of rain and mountain snow.

    Here’s a look at the New Year’s Eve forecast which thankfully won’t be affected by any big storms on Saturday night here in NYC!

    Here’s a peak at your daytime highs today across the U.S:

    Have a great day everyone.  I’ll have a complete New Years Eve update tomorrow morning.
