About Tim

Standing Serious01
    Tim Pandajis knew he wanted to be a broadcast meteorologist the moment he was snowed in by the Blizzard of 1996. Growing up in Connecticut, he was no stranger to snow, but this debilitating storm particularly sparked his passion and interest in weather. Continuously watching the meteorologists on the TV analyze the models and provide forecasts, he had new “super heroes” to aspire to.
Tim graduated from Western Connecticut State University in 2010 where he earned a B.S. in Meteorology. His first position was the weekday morning and head meteorologist at WHAG, the NBC affiliate in Hagerstown, Maryland. He also freelanced in New York for Verizon Fios during this time.

After moving to Richmond, Virginia in 2014, Tim became the weekend morning meteorologist, as well as a weekday noon meteorologist at WRIC 8News. In the Fall of 2016, he joined WVEC 13News Now as the weekday Daybreak and noon meteorologist. He eventually took the position as noon and 4pm meteorologist when a former WVEC Daybreak meteorologist decided to return to the Norfolk area.

Tim has also grown a social media following, and his videos on the 13 News Now YouTube channel have been watched over 5,000,000 times. He is proud and humbled to have his forecasts be so trusted during 2017, one of the most historic hurricane seasons on record.

Tim is a member of the American Meteorological Society and holds the Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation from the society.

Tim dedicates time to community involvement, volunteering for organizations including the Ronald McDonald House, Alzheimer’s Association, Richmond SPCA, SEVA GRREAT, FeedMore, Make-A-Wish Virginia, Seton Youth Shelters, Virginia Beach Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), and Hospice.

In addition to being a “weather nerd,” he is a history enthusiast, and takes pleasure in researching and embracing his family’s culture. He also enjoys spending time at the beach, catching local baseball games, and learning about energy sustainability.

Tim proudly shares his love for and fascination of weather with his fans, as well as occasional photos of his beloved golden retriever, Bentley.
