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
  • 58°
  • 38°

**FREEZE WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM TO 8 AM MONDAY FOR THE NORTHERN ADIRONDACKS OF NEW YORK.**
**FROST ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM TO 8 AM MONDAY FOR EASTERN AND NORTHERN VERMONT, AND WESTERN CLINTON COUNTY NEW YORK.** 

A freeze warning means a crop killing frost is highly likely. A frost advisory means that frost is possible. 

We finally saw some breaks in the clouds this afternoon, but it did remain rather chilly! If you are trying to prolong your growing season, you will want to cover your garden plants tonight. 

Tonight, as skies continue to clear out, temperatures will drop quickly. Areas of frost are likely outside of the Champlain Valley with lows in the 30s for most of us, a few of the colder spots will drop into the 20s. 

After a chilly start on Monday, our temperatures will recover into the 60s. Areas of morning fog will give way to sunshine, but clouds will return again Monday evening, with a trough of low pressure moving through. 

Showers are likely, mainly after midnight Monday night, with scattered showers Tuesday. 

Then Wednesday and Wednesday night, a reinforcing shot of colder air may trigger a few mountain showers, and it will be chilly again Thursday and Friday.
