The weather pattern known as El Nino has ended. So what does that mean for Colorado?
With El Nino ending, temperatures in the Pacific Ocean have cooled and that could mean less snow this winter in Colorado.
When El Nino is occurring, there’s a larger area of warm sea conditions. This adds warmth, moisture and energy to the atmosphere. This energy impacts the weather here in Colorado.
There are other factors that come into play when predicting winter snowfall, right now, forecasters are calling for an average winter in the Colorado mountains.
Dan attended Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas from 1978-82 (where he picked up the name Dan R after his fraternity brothers couldn’t pronounce his last name), majoring in Radio/Television. Dan lived in Jonesboro for 10 years working in radio and then was a TV weatherman for ABC affiliate KAIT Channel 8.
Television was a little boring when compared to radio, so Dan returned to hosting radio morning shows in Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma, and then eventually, Colorado.
Dan enjoys being involved in the community, having been an member of the Upper Arkansas Service Club and is currently on the board of directors for the Salida Community Center and is a member of the Chaffee County Fair Committee.
Dan and his wife Carrie spend their days doing everything the mountains have to offer: hiking, camping, fishing and skiing. They raised 3 children together and have 2 grandchildren.
