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.

  • Partly cloudy, temps in the 30s for Tuesday; Tracking storm for Friday

    Yes, we have the chance for a couple winter storms in the forecast, but let’s talk about the short-term first: High pressure will continue to control our weather for the next couple of days, so we’ll be quiet and seasonably cool. Historically speaking, Tuesday is “rock bottom”… Which is when we reach our coldest average temperature of the year. After that, the average temperature slowly rises with each passing day. That doesn’t mean much to our day-to-day forecast, but it’s […]

  • Gusty breeze, even more colder air to end the week

    The cold continues this weekend but the wind FINALLY diminishes! Highs will be in the 20s to near 30 with partly cloudy skies overall. A storm for the Mid-Atlantic will MISS us here in Connecticut on Sunday, allowing us to keep the forecast dry. Snow-lovers, don’t worry. Winter isn’t canceled and sometimes Mother Nature has a way of making up for lost time. So be careful what you wish for! Remember last year? The winter was stagnant for a while, […]

  • Much cooler weekend ahead

    From sweating to sweatpants, all in a New England week! This weekend will be comfortably cool with a mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures on Saturday will be in the low to mid 70s. At night low temperatures will drop into the low-mid 50s with some upper 40s for our typical cooler spots. Sunday will have a fall feel with clouds and some sun, and high temperatures only in the mid 60s – near 70 degrees. There is a […]

  • Taking fun to new heights at Skydive Danielson!

    DANIELSON — There are few things as counterintuitive as skydiving. For most people, when riding in a plane at 14,000 feet, their first thought isn’t, “What if I jumped out of this?” At Skydive Danielson in eastern Connecticut, their specialty is taking people on the ride of their lives. I met with Norm Nault, who would literally have my back as we fell through the atmosphere at 120 miles per hour. He caught the skydiving bug about ten years ago and […]

  • Rain moves in this weekend

    Tonight will be good for sleeping with the windows open, as lows drop into the 50s in many inland towns (around 60 on the shore). Saturday will be sunny to partly cloudy with low humidity and highs near 80 degrees. It will likely turn cloudy by sunset with showers and thunderstorms developing shortly afternoon that. Torrential downpours are likely and there is a slight risk for strong/severe storms (damaging winds, rotating storms possible). It likely won’t be a great start […]

  • Dan Explains: McCarthy Observatory is New Milford’s asteroid hunter

    NEW MILFORD — On Route 7 in New Milford, on the grounds of the high school, a small building with a dome blends in pretty well with the scenery — — until you notice the actual used tire from the Space Shuttle sitting in front, or the 6 foot model sun mounted nearby. Inside, a signed photo of Buzz Aldrin on the moon lets you know you’re in nerd heaven, and that’s before the dome opens! For the past 18 […]

  • Showers Tuesday; calm rest of the week

    After some very active weather last week, we have a m uch quieter week on tap for this one. Clouds return tomorrow, and so does our rain chance. It’ll be mostly cloudy and cooler with the chance for a few scattered showers, but the day doesn’t look like a washout at all. After that brief cooldown into the 60s on Tuesday, we’re back to the sunshine and warm temperatures on Wednesday. Highs will be in the 70s to near 80 […]

    On Thursday, the National Weather Service confirmed two more tornadoes from Tuesday’s storms, bringing the total across the state to four. The two that were confirmed today occurred in northern Litchfield County. Troopers share video of some damage in Southbury. This video also serves as a reminder that not only are there downed trees, but power lines too.Use caution cleaning up & if you’re out for a walk watch your step. If you see downed power lines don’t touch them, […]

  • Computer program written by Platt Tech students headed to space station

    MILFORD — The International Space Station is one of humanity’s greatest scientific achievements, orbiting the earth at 250 miles above our heads. Astronauts and Cosmonauts from 18 different countries have continuously occupied the station since 2000. Those astronauts have strict schedules to follow, and that brings us to the problem that NASA is trying to solve. Shayne White, a sophomore at Platt Tech in Milford, explains: “On the space station, everything’s mapped out for them (their scheduling), so right now […]
