As Chief Meteorologist, my mission is to provide the most honest, accurate weather forecasts possible. I grew up in Jackson, where my weather obsession earned me the nickname "Weatherman Dan". I earned my Atmospheric Science degree from Cornell University. My career as a TV meteorologist included stops in Oklahoma, in Central New York, and at News 12 New Jersey. I've also done research and programming work for the Northeast Regional Climate Center and NJ State Climate Office. I am proud to hold the American Meteorological Society's prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation. I live in Union County with my wife Amy and son Jackson. Things I love: family, wine, storm chasing, Broadway musicals, and Disney World.
