Tom Terry (Meteorologist) is an American television meteorologist and the Chief Meteorologist at WFTV in Orlando, Florida. Terry was born in Fresno, California but moved to the small town of Wellston, Oklahoma as a small child. His father was in the U.S. Navy and served aboard the USS Gridley (DLG-21), and later owned and operated Terry's Drug Center in Wellston as a Doctor of Pharmacy. Terry's mother taught high school history in nearby Luther, Oklahoma. Terry graduated at top of his small class in Wellston in 1987 and grew up watching TV weather anchors in OKC cover numerous bouts of severe weather, tornadoes, and winter storms. It was at that point where Terry was “hooked” on forecasting the weather and pursuing a career in front of the camera. He grew to prominence during his television coverage and forecasting of Hurricane Charley's path through Orlando in 2004. Terry publicly defied the National Hurricane Center forecast track which still took the center of the hurricane toward Tampa on August 13, 2004. Terry had correctly recognized and forecast the storm's track three hours before the NHC. It proved to be an active year for Hurricanes, as Hurricane Frances and Hurricane Jeanne passed through in the following weeks, giving Terry more time to further his skills at continuous hurricane coverage. Terry graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1991 with a degree in Meteorology and a minor in Communications. His first broadcasting job was at KGOU radio then moving to television with stints in at KRIS, in Corpus Christi and KBMT in Beaumont. In 1996, he became the AM/Noon Meteorologist at WCPX/WKMG in Orlando later moving to rival station, WFTV, in 2002. He became Chief Meteorologist in 2003. Terry holds the coveted "Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Seal of Approval" from the American Meteorological Society.
