Chief Meteorologist Tom O’Hare joined the Doppler 9&10 Weather Team in May, 2004. Before joining 9&10 News, Tom worked as the morning/noon Meteorologist in Binghamton, New York. He also worked in Watertown, New York and Rochester, New York before moving to Michigan. Tom has a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology from the State University of New York at Brockport. He’s a Member of the American Meteorological Society and holds the Society’s Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Designation or CBM. The CBM recognizes holders having the educational background and have been tested in their knowledge and communication of the sciences needed to be an effective broadcast meteorologist. Over the years he’s won several awards from The Michigan Associated Press and Michigan Association of Broadcasters. You can also listen to Tom’s forecast weekday afternoons on WTCM.
” I just love the weather. I love to get outside and enjoy it. ” Tom says, ” I grew up watching the meteorologists on TV, reading the forecast in the newspaper and making my own forecast. I would always know what the forecast was, so I could figure out what I wanted to do after school”
When Tom is not working, he’s outside keeping busy. You may see him biking, running, camping, hiking, playing volleyball, working on the house or garden or anything else that keeps him active. In the winter, he’s normally clearing the snow from his driveway or out on the snowmobile!
