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.

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 […]

    Once In A Blue Moon…

    You may have heard (or used) the popular saying “Once in a blue moon”. It’s a catchy phrase but what really is the “blue moon”. Contrary to what that name suggests, the name “blue moon” has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon. Full moons can be seen in the usual white or yellow shades or even more rare reds, oranges, and even blues depending on atmospheric conditions. To get the name “blue moon” it’s all about […]
