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
  • 49°
  • 31°

So much for that beautiful April weather we had at the beginning of the week, it's cooler and more blustery now. That's April for you.

The trough of low pressure that has been bringing the clouds and showers to the area today, will be shifiting farther offshore which will allow for some clearing for tomorrow.

In the meantime though, we can expect more rain and possible snow showers overnight tonight.

Thursday, we'll get the sun back, but it will still be breezy and chilly.

It will be a little milder on Friday, but then another storm system will arrive just in time for the weekend, bringing us clouds, showery weather on Saturday with a chance of showers on Sunday.

Not great timing, I know. It's April, enjoy the sunshine when you see it!
