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 young sons, Jackson, Griffin, and Nathan. Things I love: family, wine, storm chasing, Broadway musicals and Disney World.
Zeta’s remnants: 10 things to know about rain, flooding, snow, and cold
The remnants of Hurricane Zeta will have wide-ranging impacts on New Jersey from Thursday through Friday.
How the remnants of Zeta will impact NJ later this week
In the Thursday-Friday time frame, there are three concerns for New Jersey: soaking rain, coastal flooding, and a big cooldown.
Monday NJ weather: Damp start, cloudy but seasonable day overall
Our big weather headline of the week will be the remnants of Tropical Storm Zeta, driving in rain, wind, and much colder air by the Halloween weekend.
Friday NJ weather: Temperature roller coaster kicks in this weekend
A light on-shore breeze will keep New Jersey foggy then cloudy and relatively cooler on Friday.
Thursday NJ weather: From foggy to fantastic, then changes ahead
As the sun comes out Thursday afternoon, high temperatures will spike to the mid 70s, likely our warmest day for quite a while.
Wednesday NJ weather: Foggy start, sunny and mild finish
A Dense Fog Advisory continues for most of New Jersey until 10 a.m. Wednesday, with visibilities at or below a quarter-mile; the afternoon will be much brighter.
Tuesday NJ weather: Unsettled skies, but mild temperatures
Thermometers will generally stay above-normal for another week or so across New Jersey.
Monday NJ weather: Clouds and some sun, mainly dry and seasonable
We have a fairly pleasant week of weather ahead — we'll see a few raindrops, and thermometers will certainly have their ups and downs.
Thursday NJ weather: From sunny and mild, to rainy and miserably cool
We'll enjoy a bright, breezy, and bone-dry weather day, before our next super soaker storm system arrives.
Wednesday NJ weather: First of two A+ days, before end-of-week soaker
Sunny skies and warming temperatures will make for beautiful autumn weather across New Jersey for both Wednesday and Thursday.
Tuesday NJ weather: Drying out and slowly clearing, as Delta’s remnants exit
After over 3 inches of rain fell over parts of New Jersey, we're about flip the forecast switch back to dry and pleasant weather for the next few days.
Remnants of Delta: How much rain for NJ, and when it will end
After a long stretch of rain-free weather, tropical moisture will fuel another soaking for New Jersey.
