Dave Busch

Dave Busch is the weekend Meteorologist on WCAX-TV.

Dave's hometown is Warwick, New York. After high school, he worked as a carpenter (Busch Contracting) for 5 years. Now, carpentry is just a hobby...his true love is weather. "My family encouraged me to go for Meteorology...I'll always appreciate the love and support they've given me," Dave says. Ever since he was a kid, he would always go outside on his porch during a thunderstorm, and just gaze at the sky.

Dave attended the University of Oklahoma for 4 years, where he earned a Bachelor Degree in Meteorology. He loves to chase tornadoes, and got to see at least 2 of them. He also volunteered as a Meteorologist on Norman News, owned and operated by the University of Oklahoma. It was then that Dave realized he wanted to be a TV Meteorologist.

After the University of Oklahoma, he spent one year at the New England School of Communications in Bangor, Maine...earning a Certificate in Broadcasting in May 2000, along with being awarded Student of The Year. In August 2000, he began working at WCAX-TV as the weekend Meteorologist. In April 2001, he began working some weekdays in the production department, in addition to doing the weekend weather.

If Dave is not spending time with the weather, he likes to spend time in the kitchen, as he loves to cook a variety of dishes along with making his own homemade wine. Other interests include lifting weights, fishing, video games, solving puzzles, traveling, and always wanting to learn something new.

Inside the Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 36°
  • 21°

A *FLOOD WATCH* remains in effect through 8pm this evening.

Several *FLOOD WARNINGS* are in effect near area rivers and streams. Generally speaking, the rivers and streams will begin to recede over the next 1-2 days. Remember, turn around, don't drown.

Winds will lighten up this evening and we'll see clear skies. This, coupled with a dry atmosphere, will lead to radiation cooling conditions. Overnight lows will average 12/22.

Thursday and Friday are looking like nice days! We'll see a lot of sunshine, with moderating temperatures.

A weak system could give us a few showers on Saturday. Easter Sunday will start out sunny, then more clouds could arrive in the afternoon. 

Looking ahead, a couple of weak disturbance could touch off a few showers early next week.
