Born and raised in Erie, Dan Rupp’s interest for weather was sparked by the heavy lake effect snowstorms that manifest in the Northwest PA area.
Growing up in a snow belt city and witnessing thunder snow first-hand, engrossed him to pursue a career in Meteorology.
Dan obtained his Bachelor of Science in Meteorology Degree at the Pennsylvania State University where he forecasted for Penn State’s Campus Weather Service. He also interned at JET24/FOX66, receiving knowledge of the televised weather world. He then launched his professional career at KSAN-TV in San Angelo, TX as a weekend meteorologist. Many Texas storms later, Dan has gained a copious amount of severe weather experience ranging from large hail to tornadoes.
Dan moved from San Angelo, TX to join the JET24/FOX66 news team back in August of 2017 as a weekend meteorologist.
When he isn’t forecasting for northwest PA, Dan enjoys snowboarding, hiking, and traveling.
