I am a meteorologist forecasting Florida’s ever-changing weather. AMA
I am News 6 WKMG’s Tom Sorrells and I’ve been a meteorologist for 34 years. My top concern is keeping Central Floridians safe during dangerous weather conditions and helping them plan their day. I’ve been covering Florida’s weather for News 6 for almost 20 years but have worked in many markets across the U.S., including Detroit, Columbus and Myrtle Beach.
I like to connect with the local community daily through a live chat segment called “Talk to Tom” and am known for my dedication to live weather coverage when hurricanes are bearing down on Florida. My work earned News 6 the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award for journalistic excellence in its coverage of hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne in 2004.
When not crunching data in the weather center, I can be found enjoying time with my wife, three daughters and Goldendoodle, Toby. I also enjoy going out on a nice day to fish or ride my motorcycle.
Now that you know a little bit about me, I’m ready for you to Ask Me Anything.
