Dave originally joined KHQ Weather Team in 2005. With over 25 years in the weather discipline, Dave had definitely "seen it and done it." A graduate from the Air Force's Advanced Meteorology curriculum and Mississippi State, he holds degrees in "Weather Technology" and "Operational Meteorology."

"Weather assignments have taken me around the planet and allowed me to experience an unbelievable breadth of phenomena and responsibility." The abbreviated list of weather assignments include: Korea, Persian Gulf, Micronesia, North Carolina, California, and many more locations. While at those, he was the lead forecaster for events ranging from Air Force One flights, hurricane evacuations, rescue operations, to satellite space launches and NASA shuttle landings. His final stop was as Fairchild AFB's, Chief Meteorologist, where he retired from military service in 2005. "It was awesome to be back home in Washington." Since 2001, he continues to work a few days per month at the Spokane Airport Weather Office/Air Traffic Control Tower.

Dave's an avid fisherman/fly fisher. On any given day, he could be on one of our treasured lakes/rivers or exploring a fresh gem. "I actually make plans based on my forecasts…and that sure-fire advantage ensures I know when to go, where to go, and I'm prepared for Mother Nature."

Dave is a decorated veteran, but says his most satisfying professional accomplishment was earning the Merewether Award for research and use of Doppler Acoustic Radar technology to improve aviation forecasts. As far as best weather experiences…there are thousands, and they're all about "A spot-on weather forecast."

Wednesday Morning Weather Update: Warmest Day of the Week Today!
 
Today: Sunny skies and the warmest day of the week as the warmer air-mass we've been talking about sits right on top of the region today. A weak disturbance this afternoon looks to kick up the winds for our Cascade Valleys (Wenatchee, Kittitas) to between 15-25mph, but further east winds expected to stay around 10mph. Enjoy another beautiful day! Spokane High: 88°
 
Satellite & Radar: A drier, warmer, high pressure air-mass is centered over E. Washington today, making today the warmest day of the week. But over the course of the next couple of days the jet stream is going to start sinking to the south, until it crosses right over the Pacific Northwest. That will bring some cooler temperatures after today, then a cold front expected Friday Night/Saturday morning looks to make for a cooler, breezy weekend with spotty showers.
 
Tomorrow: A mostly sunny start to the day on Thursday but some clouds moving in during the afternoon will limit our high temperatures. Overall, another pretty nice day for the Inland Northwest! High: 83°
