Dan Holley
Meteorologist and IT Specialist

Born and bred in the Weald of Kent, Dan holds a lifelong fascination with the weather, especially when it comes to the thunderstorm season. Fuelled by the ambition to become a Broadcast Meteorologist, Dan completed his BSc (Hons) in Meteorology and Oceanography at the University of East Anglia in 2013, joining Weatherquest in August 2011 initially as a placement student as part of the Year in Industry programme at the UEA, but since graduating now works as both a Meteorologist and IT Specialist. Since 2013, Dan has also been a relief weather presenter for BBC Look East.

Dan is an Associate Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS), acting as the Student Liaison for the East Anglia Centre during his final year at university. With his interest in thunderstorms and convective weather, Dan is a member of the Tornado and Storm Research Organisation (TORRO) and regularly goes storm chasing in the Great Plains of the U.S. in the spring each year. Dan occasionally "chases" the aurora across northern Scotland and Iceland around the equinoxes.
