Dan Tomaso - abc27 WHTM

Dan Tomaso

Growing up in central Pennsylvania, Dan witnessed many different types of extreme weather events including blizzards, severe thunderstorms, and floods.

Hurricane Danny in 1997 inspired Dan to study meteorology when the storm caught his attention due to the name. From this point forward, he watched the weather for fun and learned as much as he could from evening newscasts on abc27 with the StormTrak Team.

Dan first began communicating his weather knowledge over a closed circuit television channel entitled the "Royal News Network" at Saint Catherine Laboure School during his seventh and eighth grade years. In 2007, a special broadcast on this channel featured Chuck Rhodes as a special guest, who further inspired Dan to pursue the study of meteorology.

Dan's love for the weather continues now as he studies meteorology at Penn State University as an undergraduate/graduate student. He is actively involved in the Campus Weather Service, serving as President on the Executive Council. He has also led the Campus Weather Service's severe weather team, which informs clients across central Pennsylvania with up to the minute severe weather information.

Besides taking the necessary undergraduate and graduate level classes in meteorology, Dan is currently a student teacher for a class that studies the computer applications of meteorology.

Starting in August 2009, Dan began working on the abc27 Saturday and Sunday Morning shows with James Crummel. Dan enjoys working with the weekend morning crew and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work for the news station he grew up with. He owes his success to his mentor and friend Brett Thackara who worked with Dan as an intern, along with Eric Finkenbinder and Rob Dixon.

In his spare time Dan enjoys hanging out with friends and family in Harrisburg. He also is an avid sports fan, especially professional baseball and football.
