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
  • 78°
  • 65°

The Labor Day Weekend started off with a beautiful Saturday, and plenty of sunshine.  Sunday will be a different story.  A low pressure and associated cold front will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon.  Some thunderstorms may produce heavy downpours.  It will be noticeably more humid.  This system won't actually make it through the region, but will head back into Canada as a warm front Sunday night.  Labor Day, therefore, is looking pretty good, with partly sunny skies and just an isolated thunderstorm possible.

Tuesday will start off partly sunny, very warm and humid.  A cold front will bring thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening.  Conditions are looking good for the possibility of strong or severe thunderstorms, so stay tuned.  Wednesday will be dry and less humid.

Pleasant weather is on tap for Thursday and Friday, but there's the chance for showers and thunderstorms on Saturday.
