Lee Haywood is the new chief meteorologist with WWAY tv in Wilmington. He arrived in August 2019 and is proud to join WWAY’s news and weather staff. He has over 20 years experience in television broadcasting and is excited to be in southeast North Carolina and the Cape Fear and to forecast the wide array of weather conditions our coast experiences. He has covered several major tornado outbreaks… lots of tropical storms… several brushes with hurricanes including hurricane Matthew, Irma and Michael. Lee formally was with WSAV tv in Savannah GA for 19 and a half years. Lee also was an instructor of meteorology at Armstrong State University in Savannah for over 17 and a half years before joining WWAY. He began his career in January 1999 after graduating with a degree in Atmospheric sciences (meteorology) at UNC-Asheville (Dec 1998). He started at KIMT in Mason City Iowa and worked for a year before arriving in Savannah. He was a weather intern for over a year and a half at WLOS tv in Asheville NC before finishing his schooling at UNCA. Lee has been fascinated with weather since he was a little boy growing up in Virginia. A tornado went through the fields of the farm he grew up on that turned the tide for him. He read every thing he could find on weather… set up his own weather instruments… made observations. By high school… he was volunteering at tv stations and the National Weather Service… creating computer programs to forecast the weather… and writing zone forecasts for the weather in Virginia. This is a natural progression for someone who’s love and passion is the weather. Lee resides on the south side of Wilmington. In his spare time, he enjoys reading… watching movies and strolling the beautiful beaches of the Cape Fear and venturing downtown Wilmington.
