Dan has lived in Connecticut his entire life, and loves working in his home state.
Like many in the weather business, Dan has always had a passion for weather. Growing up in Cheshire, he remembers being 8 years old and venturing outside during thunderstorms, much to his mother’s dismay. He spent a good chunk of his childhood reading weather books and watching tornado chasing videos. Dan is a big fan of severe weather, and loves the excitement of breaking weather news.

Dan graduated from Western Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. While at WCSU, he produced and anchored many school run weather broadcasts for the University’s website, as well as forecasts for the school’s radio station. He was a member of the baseball team, and patrolled center field at WCSU for 4 years.

After college, Dan got his start at WGGB ABC40/FOX6 in Springfield, MA, where he was the weekend weather anchor.

Dan is a Certified Broadcast Meteorologist, the highest certification from the American Meteorology Society. He still enjoys brushing up on his old weather textbooks! In his meager free time he enjoys running, playing baseball, and spending time with his family.

  • Precautions to EEE mosquito virus

    HARTFORD —  Eastern Equine Encephalytis (EEE) is carried by mosquitoes and they typically give it to birds or horses. But in rare cases it can be transmitted to humans. It is still a serious virus with a mortality rate of around 33 percent. If a mosquito with EEE were to bite you, there’s a 95 percent chance you won’t get the virus, and even if you’re unlucky enough to get it, there are varying degrees of what you’d experience. Most […]

  • Do you know what Artificial Intelligence is?

    HARTFORD — First off, what is Artificial Intelligence (AI)? To find out a bit more, we talked to professor Mark Hoffman from Quinnipiac University. “Basically, you’re making machines that have human characteristics, intelligence being one of those characteristics,” said Hoffman. We use AI all the time, and for many of us, without even knowing it. Your TV has it, your coffeemaker has it, your car uses it. Think anti-lock brakes or traction control. The iPhone’s Siri and Amazon’s Alexa are […]

  • Frequently asked questions about the solar eclipse

    What exactly is an eclipse? It’s simply the moon passing in front of the sun, creating a shadow over a small portion of the Earth. The area of totality is the spot that will be getting the full darkness of that shadow, while here in Connecticut we’ll be in a partial eclipse, which means the sun will be 67 percent covered. It’ll look like a crescent sun, sort of like the moon looks at times in the night sky, except […]

  • Over 60 planets discovered by Yale Astronomy student

    HARTFORD —  Yale astronomers have announced the discovery of 60 more planets in our galaxy. With these planets, they’re appropriately calling it a cosmic barbecue, with the announcement coming right around July 4th. They’re being described as hot Jupiters. They’re Jupiter-sized gas planets that orbit their stars super close. So close in fact, that their orbit takes less than a week; meaning a year is a week-long on those planets. What they discovered is impressive enough, but it’s also a […]
