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.

Inside the Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 36°
  • 21°

A *FLOOD WATCH* remains in effect through 8pm this evening.

Several *FLOOD WARNINGS* are in effect near area rivers and streams. Generally speaking, the rivers and streams will begin to recede over the next 1-2 days. Remember, turn around, don't drown.

Winds will lighten up this evening and we'll see clear skies. This, coupled with a dry atmosphere, will lead to radiation cooling conditions. Overnight lows will average 12/22.

Thursday and Friday are looking like nice days! We'll see a lot of sunshine, with moderating temperatures.

A weak system could give us a few showers on Saturday. Easter Sunday will start out sunny, then more clouds could arrive in the afternoon. 

Looking ahead, a couple of weak disturbance could touch off a few showers early next week.
