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 and Griffin. Things I love: family, wine, storm chasing, Broadway musicals and Disney World.
NJ weather: Breaks of sun Monday, with gusty showers possible
Our forecast still looks unsettled this week, but I'm trying to pinpoint the pockets of pleasant weather along the way.
NJ weather: Mild Friday, then mixing wet and warm for the weekend
A warm front will dominate New Jersey's weather forecast through the weekend.
Thursday will be NJ’s last completely dry day through the weekend
We'll soak up the sunshine Thursday, but a few batches of rain and wild temperature swings are expected for New Jersey through the upcoming final weekend of March.
NJ weather: Rainy, grey, and cool Wednesday, but not a total washout
As a storm system passes south of New Jersey, we'll see a few rounds of light to moderate rain throughout the day Wednesday.
NJ weather: Dry and pleasant Tuesday, not so much Wednesday
We find ourselves in between two storm systems Tuesday, leading to a dry, pleasant, and seasonable weather day for New Jersey.
Monday NJ weather: Rain all day, some light snow, miserably cool
The first of several storm systems this week will drive steady, heavy rain through New Jersey all day Monday.
Big warmup for NJ Friday – foggy, showery, stormy, and windy too
It's going to feel pretty steamy across New Jersey by Friday afternoon, but it's not a perfect weather forecast for the first full day of Spring.
NJ Thursday weather: Wet start, lots of clouds, and a farewell to winter
Heavy rain will not stick around all day Thursday, although some wildly active weather is in the forecast for New Jersey.
Lots of ‘green’ on radar Tuesday morning, but ‘luckily’ a drier afternoon for NJ
A batch of rain showers will make for a damp start to Tuesday, but conditions will improve with mild temperatures in the afternoon.
Monday NJ weather: Sunny start, cloudy end, cool temperatures
This weekend's lovely sunshine will continue for New Jersey for the first half of Monday, but our next storm system looms ever closer.

A period of steady to heavy rain and a gusty wind will punctuate a warm day for New Jersey on this Friday the 13th.
Wednesday NJ weather: Cooler, but still mild
Not a bad weather day ahead for New Jersey, with temperatures cooler than Tuesday but warmer than seasonal normals yet again.
