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."

Tuesday Night Weather Update: Isolated Showers and Thunderstorms
 
Tonight~ Chance for rain and thunderstorms, 85° tomorrow.
 
Satellite & Radar:In the next 24 hours, we are going to see showers and thunderstorms throughout the area. This system is going to bring heavy rain...especially where the Carlton Complex fire is burning. This sounds wonderful and will probably help the fires, but the heavy rain could bring flash flooding to the area that was just burned. So, we could see more damage with flooding and debris flows.
 
Flash Flood Watch~Slopes of the Cascades, Okanogan Valley and in the Wenatchee Area.
 
Red Flag Warning: is now in place across the lower Columbia Basin until 11pm on Wednesday. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible in that area today AND tomorrow. Lightning strikes and gusty outflow winds are the biggest concerns.
 
7-Day Forecast: Thursday looks like we could see some morning showers, but you weekend looks heavenly!! 80s and sunny both Saturday and Sunday. Than things really warm up during the week...highs in the 90s!
