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
  • 80°
  • 56°

The rest of today will be partly sunny and warm. A lingering front could trigger an isolated shower later today, mainly south.

Tonight will be partly cloudy and comfortable with lows of 48/58.

Cooler air will return on Thursday, with highs around 70. A little bit of upper-level energy working through could trigger an isolated shower, mainly in the mountains.

After that high pressure will work overhead on Friday. This means we'll see plenty of sunshine to round out the workweek.

Unfornately the forecast goes downhill for the holiday weekend:

A frontal system will be catching up to us and stalling out.  Warmer, more humid air will be moving in on Saturday. Most of Saturday should be okay, but there could be a few showers and t-storms later in the day and evening.  Sunday looks like it will be the most active day, especially later in the day, with showers & t-storms.  Some heavy downpours are possible. A few showers and t-storms could also linger into Labor Day.

Another front will come our way late Tuesday with more showers & t-storms.

We may finally begin to quiet down next Wednesday.
