Tom Sherry is Spokane's favorite TV weather forecaster for the 24th year.

SPOKANE, Wash. — Tom Sherry was voted Best TV Weathercaster for the 24th year in The Inlander newspaper's Best of 2019 issue. 

He has already been inducted into the Inlander Hall of Fame for winning best weather forecaster for more than 10 years. 

In 1998, Sherry was also recognized as Spokane's favorite weathercaster in The Spokesman-Review's first Reader's Poll.

"Since 1990, Tom Sherry has helped his Spokane viewers decide between an umbrella or sunscreen on KREM where he now serves as chief meteorologist. His approachable and engaging forecasts have helped him dominate this category since 1995," the Best of 2019 blurb about Sherry reads. 

Sherry tweeted about the honor on Wednesday afternoon.

"I'm honored and very grateful for your support for 24 years. Thank YOU!" Sherry wrote. 

Former KREM Sports Director Darnay Tripp may have said it best: Death. Taxes. And Tom Sherry. 

Sherry is the chief meteorologist for KREM 2 News and 4 p.m. news anchor. He began his broadcast career in radio in 1981 as an announcer, eventually becoming program director at KDRK-FM in Spokane.

In 1990, Sherry began working as a weekend weathercaster at KREM 2 News in 1990, moving into the morning weather anchor position in 1992. He stepped into the role of chief meteorologist in 1993. 

A graduate of the Mississippi State University Broadcast Meteorological program, Sherry has the National Weather Association Seal of Approval and is a member of the American Meteorological Society. 

In his spare time, Sherry enjoys skiing, boating, rollerblading, gardening, barbecuing and volunteering. He also serves as a professional auctioneer for many local events. 

The Inlander Best of 2019 issue is on stands as of Thursday.
