Dan Dowling

Dan Dowling grew up watching snowstorms roll in off Lake Ontario, while he lived in Rochester, New York.

His love of the snow followed him to Oswego State University of New York, which is infamously known as the ‘Lake Effect Snow Capital of the World', where he received his Bachelor's Degree in Meteorology in 1996.  Dan then spent a few years at Plattsburgh State University, where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication in 1998.

Three days after graduation, he was hired at WCAX for the Sunday evening news. In April 1999, Dan moved to Weekend News, and in March 2000, he assumed the forecasting duties on the Channel 3 News at 11pm weeknights. He is now the meterologist for the 5pm weeknight newscast as well.

Dan is married to a native Vermonter, and also teaches broadcast meteorology at Lyndon State College.  He likes to explore by snowshoe in the winter, and cook on the barbecue grill whenever the weather gets warm. At 6 feet, 7 inches tall, Dan is easily the tallest person at Channel 3... people say he's just 'closer' to the sky.

It's definitely a cooler, less humid day, with some spots not even getting out of the 60s for highs.  Tonight will clear and cool, with the colder valleys dipping into the mid 40s for lows.  We'll have another great day on Friday, with mostly sunny skies.

The first half of this weekend will be nice, with quiet weather on Saturday.  Sunday will be more humid, and a storm system will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms.  This system will stick around for Monday, with more showers and thunderstorms, and even a few showers lingering into Tuesday.

Midweek is looking good, with dry and warm weather on tap for Wednesday and Thursday.
