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."

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 81°
  • 58°

Thursday Evening Weather Update: Mostly Sunny Morning, Increasing Afternoon Clouds
 
Tonight: A few passing clouds , comfortable overnight lows. Winds will be breezy...with gust 20-25mph. 58°  GREEN
 
Tomorrow: Sunny and breezy, with gust expected to 20 mph. Temps will once again top out at just about average. 81°/53°  GREEN
 
Your 7-Day forecast:  
Friday, high pressure is replaced by a deep trough (big dip in the jet stream) that will allow much cooler weather and breezy winds to move in.  Like today's system...this too looks to have very little moisture involved and I will keep the possibility of any showers confined to areas up across the Canadian boarder and Cascade crest. 
 
Campers....Your biggest chance of showers as of NOW is in extreme NE Washington and North Idaho,  your BIGGEST issue will be gusty winds to 25mph on Saturday ...so be prepared to batten down the hatches and bring a warm sleeping bag and extra sweat shirts as temps will likely fall into the mid 40's and low 50's for overnight lows.
