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
  • 73°
  • 57°

A slow-moving low pressure system will give us a super soaker of a Monday.  1-2" of rain could fall as heavy downpours cruise through the region.  There could be a few embedded thunderstorms, too.

No major flooding is expected, because of the dry conditions lately, but there could be some localized street flooding, so be aware of that if you are out and about today.

Everything will settle down on Tuesday as the storm system departs.  It will be less humid, and we'll get a lot of sunshine going by the afternoon.

Come Wednesday, we will start to get in on an unsettled weather pattern that resembles more of a spring pattern than a summer one.  Each day through the end of the week and through the weekend will feature partly sunny skies, but there will also be the chance for a stray shower or two.

Take it easy out there on this wet Monday.
