Dave Hayes the Weather Nut
Best Local meteorologist
Dave Hayes is the Pioneer Valley’s own down-to-earth hyper-local weather nut, who has been combining his passion for weather with humor and a knack for explaining meteorological data. Hayes also ranked first place in Valley Advocate Best of the Valley 2017, 2016, and 2015. He said he loves being a part of the western Massachusetts community and is grateful to all the listeners he’s picked up since 2011 when he started. Most recently, Hayes launched a new newsletter and also has a podcast in the works. He said he’s always been fascinated with the weather from an early age and that the Pioneer Valley’s weather proves to be interesting year after year. “I love the dynamic weather systems that move through the Valley and how the terrain affects their presentation,” he said.
