Chief Meteorologist Larry Mowry joined the CBS 11 Storm Team in January 2008 from CBS affiliate WKMG-TV in Orlando.
A native of Ohio, Larry earned a Bachelor of Science degree in meteorology from Valparaiso University in Indiana. While in college, he had the opportunity to be a storm chaser as part of a study on tornadoes in the Central Plains. He has also worked as a meteorologist at television and radio stations in Erie, Penn., South Bend, Ind., and Chicago.
Larry is passionate about weather and the technology used to predict it. “I’m a perfectionist. I try to get it right the first time, every time,” he says.
Larry has received eight Lone Star Emmy Awards, two of them for best weathercaster. He is a proud supporter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and has hosted the MDA Labor Day Telethon. He also serves on the President’s Council for Lutheran Social Services of Texas.
Larry is married with two daughters. In addition to spending time with his family, he enjoys jogging, lifting weights, music and traveling.
