Daniel Phillips is from the Florida Gulf Coast and grew up in Navarre, Florida. He attended Florida State University where he received a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology.
Daniel got his start in television as a fill in meteorologist for WTXL in Tallahassee, and was part of an all student weather show that aired every weeknight. The show made him fall in love with television and he is joining the KATC 3 team from Grand Junction, Colorado where he worked as the morning meteorologist for KREX.
Daniel is very excited to be back in the southeast, forecasting the same weather patterns that sparked his interest in weather, and he’s looking forward to bringing Acadiana their forecast. In his free time you can find Daniel outdoors doing everything from kayaking and hiking to just sitting around a pool.
