Myles Henderson joined the Live VIPIR Forecast Team in June of 2010. He is excited and proud to be a part of WTKR NewsChannel 3, the station that he grew up watching.

Myles is a local guy, calling Chesapeake home, and is a graduate of Hickory High School. Myles didn't venture too far from home after that, a few hours to the southwest to North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology at NC State.

Myles returned to the state of Virginia to start his career as a broadcast meteorologist at the Charlottesville Newsplex (WCAV/WVAW/WAHU). While at WCAV, Myles was a part of the weather team that won the Virginia Association of Broadcasters meritorious award for best weathercast.

When not forecasting in the Live VIPIR Forecast Center, Myles likes to spend time enjoying the outdoors. Camping, hiking, canoeing, snowboarding, any outdoor activity really, but the beach tops the list. He's also an avid sports fan, especially college football and basketball. Myles' favorite teams to follow are the NC State Wolfpack, Carolina Panthers, and Norfolk Admirals.

  • Friday Flooding Recap from Meteorologist Myles Henderson

    Many people woke up to a Mother Nature alarm clock Friday morning. Heavy rain and gusty winds rolled in as a big cold front pressed eastward. Two features combined to dramatically increase our flooding potential… movement and intensity.

  • Myles’ Weather Blog: The stormy setup

    It has been a very soggy and stormy week for most of the eastern half of the U.S. and there is still more to come. We have been “stuck” in a weather pattern this week but luckily we will be “unstuck” just in time for the weekend.

  • A chance for Spring snow

    It’s something that most of us do not want to hear… spring snow. However, Mother Nature doesn’t seem to care what the date on the calendar says.

    Welcome Spring… with caution

    Today at 12:57 PM we celebrate the Vernal Equinox. The March equinox signals the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Typically when we change seasons or roll into a new month I like to take a look back at our weather stats. I think it’s best this time (and my guess is you agree) that we just look forward to the new season ahead. After this winter season, most of us are looking […]

    Giant walls could stop tornadoes

    In a recent article in “Time”, Professor Rongjia Tao of Temple University claims that building large tornado walls could save lives and property by stopping twisters before they begin. Could a “Great Wall of America” really stop tornadoes? Professor Tao’s proposal calls for the construction of three walls,  1,000 feet tall and up to 100 miles long. These walls (with a $16.9 billion price tag) would be built in North Dakota, along the border between Kansas and Oklahoma, and in Texas […]
