I am New Jersey 101.5's Senior Producer for Morning News and Special Programming, also serving as lead reporter and fill-in anchor for "New Jersey's First News." I was formerly the station's Evening News Anchor from 2013 to 2016. I'm proud to be a member of our on-air and digital teams which were honored by the New Jersey chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, for coverage of the 2016 Seaside Park bombing, and by the New Jersey Broadcasters Association, for the 2015 fatal Amtrak derailment. I got my start in radio at The College of New Jersey, on student-run WTSR-FM, and graduated from TCNJ in 2009. Before coming to 101.5, I did news and sports for WGHT-AM in Pompton Lakes and WYNY-FM in Milford, PA. In a previous life as a child actor, I appeared in the Broadway cast of "Beauty and the Beast" from 1994 to 1996. I live in Hunterdon County with my wife, Kristen, and our 6-pound toy poodle and life of the party, Archie.
Coming to the end of an interesting few weather weeks
It was not certain at one point that Friday would be sunny like each of the five days that preceded it, but as it turns out, just a few clouds will dot the sky as we end another work week.
Slowly sliding toward some slick weather this weekend
The warmup across New Jersey has been incremental, if not imperceptible, over the last few days. But that will accelerate as slowly increasing cloud cover portends a wet weekend.
Wednesday’s weather stuck in a holding pattern
Wednesday is the fourth of what will eventually be six consecutive sunny, chilly days in the Garden State, as temperatures continue to warm — but not too much.
Keep recycling this forecast: Sunny and progressively less chilly
It is still plenty cold across the Garden State on this Tuesday, but although you wouldn't guess it, we are starting a gradual warmup that will have us feeling much more comfortable by the weekend.
The calm before … well, a lot of things
There are so many nuances to this weekend's forecast that Dan will be back here online on Friday. Such is the nature of winter in New Jersey!
Winter temperatures make their return by the weekend
You knew this wasn't going to last, right?
Back to normal-ish after abnormally warm January weekend
You might expect this level of volatility from the stock market, but not usually from your New Jersey weather in the middle of January.
Nathan’s First Forecast: I bet it’s not always this warm here…
Oh, sorry — wrong Nathan.
One more cold day … then an uncharacteristic winter warmup
Chilly temperatures persist on this Thursday, although we lose the pesky snow squalls that some of us in New Jersey experienced briefly on Wednesday.
Snow squalls could interrupt, endanger travel Wednesday
On the surface, there will be sun and seasonably chilly temperatures on Wednesday. But there's a lot more of which you should be aware.
Not quite balmy, but a comfortable holiday week
Christmas Day will not be the warmest day of this week as previously speculated, but we are nonetheless looking at a calm, almost boring, stretch of December weather for the Garden State.
Staying dry and slowly warming up for Christmas
On Thursday afternoon, I said to someone that it was "offensively cold" outside, and even in a culture where someone always seems to be offended by something, I didn't think that description was out of line.
