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
  • 60°
  • 46°

After a chilly start to Friday, with more sunshine it will be a little warmer with temperatures reaching the upper 50s and low 60s. 

That's not a trend we can hang onto, there is a storm system that will be approaching from the midwest and that will be bringing lots of clouds and showers especially for the first part of our weekend. 

That weather system will pull away leaving us with some drier conditions for late Sunday and Sunday night.

Then we expect some nice weather for the early part of next week. However a slow moving storm system will catch up with us by the middle of the week, with a chance for more showers Wednesday and Thursday.
