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
  • 65°
  • 49°

Wednesday, late in the day, a cold front will drop down from Canada with just a few showers, mainly north and in the mountains. 

Behind that cold front, skies will clear out again and it will be cooler again as well. That means highs only in the 50s again on Thursday and Friday, and we are in for another frosty morning Friday morning with lows in the upper 20s and low 30s. 

Temperatures will warm up again over the weekend, with highs reaching the 60s, but the next front will bring some showers our way late on Sunday.
