Dan Holley
Head of Forecasting, IT and Multimedia Engineer

Originally from 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 Engineer. Since 2013, Dan has also been a relief weather presenter for BBC Look East.

In April 2021, Dan became the Head of Forecasting at Weatherquest, acting as the line manager for the forecast team.

During his final year at university, Dan served as the Student Liaison for the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) East Anglia Centre, and in November 2021 joined the Editorial Board of the society's journal Weather. With his interest in thunderstorms and convective weather, Dan is both a member and the webmaster of the Tornado and Storm Research Organisation (TORRO), and has been storm chasing in Tornado Alley almost every year since 2012. Dan also enjoys photography and has been on numerous photography trips around the UK and to Iceland.
