Dan Henry

Meteorologist

Born in Michigan but a graduate of Riverview High School, Dan moved back home to join SNN in August of 2017. He holds a Master of Science degree in Applied Meteorology from Mississippi State University and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics with a certificate in meteorology and climatology from the University of Florida. Dan loves all things weather-related, but especially enjoys studying and forecasting tropical weather and climatology. He is happy to be back in Sarasota and bringing a “dry” sense of humor to the occasional slow weather days.

After attending high school here, Dan lived in Gainesville, FL through college and most of graduate school. He worked in TV, radio, print and digital media there for a variety of both public and commercial outlets. His favorite memories from that time were helping to keep Florida residents safe and informed around the clock during Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew. Outside of weather, Dan loves music and sports, especially tennis. He is proud to have competed in a semi-pro tennis tournament (lost first round), and has worked as a DJ, venue manager, radio show host and has even played in two rock bands.
