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."

T.G.I.F Weather Update: Looking Good Until A Disturbance Saturday night

Evening/Overnight: Easygoing winds, a vivid sunset & a moonlit, clear night (GREEN)

Saturday: Crisp morning temperatures, high clouds, pale blue skies & filtered sun…an eggs'cellent day for Easter egg hunters & most outdoor events until changes a cold front sweeps through with some brief showers & gusty winds for the late afternoon/evening…Low/High 33°/64° (GREEN Day, YELLOW Evening)

Easter Sunday: A little breezy, but not a "Wild Hare" Day, so Easter bonnets might just be optional as a mix of sun/clouds dominates the forecast most of the day…Low/High 36°/58° (GREEN)

FYI: Easter Sunday is the first major outdoor holiday of the year. Since the date varies anywhere from March 23rd to April 25th, weather conditions can be almost wintry to very springy. The snowiest Easter was April 4th,1975 where almost 2 ½" fell & the hottest was back on April 19th, 1908, when the temperatures rose to 81°. Hoppy Easter!
