The Curious Case of Dave Dahl

Avid weather enthusiasts know that Dave Dahl is not afraid to stand out from the crowd, even the crowd at his own station. And there's nothing necessarily wrong with that. But what should be concerning is how often his snow forecasts are notably too high. I've actually heard some in the business say that you can take half of Dave Dahl's snow forecast and that will give you KARE11's snow forecast.

At any rate, Dave is once again standing apart from the crowd. His blog from today (Dec. 7) expresses confident in a pattern change, one that almost assuredly will be good news for those who love snow and who want a white Christmas. As always, we shall see.
