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 Snow Q&A

    Snow boots, Snow shovels, Sleds, Snow blower…. Don’t get too excited about Friday’s snow chances just yet. With the threat of snow in Hampton Roads we (meteorologists) always get a flood of questions about the system and what we will see. So let’s take a moment to answer a few… When will the snow start? Rain will change over to snow overnight/early Friday morning. The transition will start to the north (Northern Neck, northern Eastern Shore) just after midnight. The […]

    Christmas Weather

    A white Christmas? A warm Christmas? A soggy Christmas? We are still about a week away so the actual forecast is still to come, but let’s take a look at some past Christmas statistics. Let’s start with the number one question… Will we have a white Christmas? It’s a rare thing to see in Hampton Roads, but not impossible. Since 1890, Norfolk has had 6 Christmas days with measurable snowfall and only 3 with an inch or more. The greatest […]

    Viewer question: What does it take to get snow in Hampton Roads?

    With the official start to winter less than a month away and the recent cold snaps across the area, many in Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina are asking questions about what this winter season will bring. This weekend I received an email from Philip with several questions about the winter season: “My question is, in order to get a good snow event here in the Hampton Roads area is to have a storm either from the west or a […]

    Wind shift = Big changes

    For days we have been tracking a large "Arctic Cold Front" as it slides down from Canada to the U.S. We talked rain, snow, wind, and cold air. Today, that system moved in but it really all boiled down to a wind shift.

    October Weather Recap

    Soggy and warm… Probably the best way to sum up October’s weather in Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina. All four of our local climate sites reported rainfall totals above average this month, but there are still some deficits for the yearly totals. Average temperatures ranged between one and four degrees above normal. Here is a closer look at the numbers: Norfolk Hottest: 89°, Coldest: 37°, Average: 63.8°, Avg vs Norm: +1.7 Rainfall: 4.13″, vs Avg: +0.71″, 8 days of […]

    Why the Seattle weather?

    For over a week now the forecast has sounded like a broken record… “cloudy, rain, fog, drizzle, etc.” October is not traditionally a soggy month for Hampton Roads. In Norfolk, we average 3.42″ of rain for the entire month of October. We have already topped that mark and we are less than half way through the month. So why do we seem to be stuck in this Seattle-like weather pattern? Generally speaking, weather systems have to be pushed or steered […]

    Karen weakens into a depression, threatens the Gulf Coast

    Tropical Depression Karen is a much weaker system as it threatens portions of the Gulf Coast with rain and wind over the next few days. Karen is centered about 185 miles south of the mouth of the Mississippi River. Karen is not expected to re-strengthen into a tropical storm as it encounters increasing wind shear and dry air. It will likely make landfall Sunday along the Gulf coast, producing heavy rain and gusty winds over that region. Follow Karen with our Interactive […]
