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

A trough of low pressure will move through on Thursday; this will touch off some scattered showers and t-storms. We could see some clearing develop during the afternoon.

Friday looks like a pretty good day. Overall we'll just see partly to mostly sunny skies. There's still the slight risk for a pop-up shower.

Our latest forecast guidance is showing a few more clouds over the weekend. We will also run the risk of a few pop-up showers, mainly during the afternoon hours.

Looking ahead, another frontal system will move through here on Monday with some scattered showers and t-storms.

Temperature-wise, we have no big warm-ups in the forecast over the next week.
