Overview

Meteorological Technicians observe, brief on and forecast weather conditions in support of operations at Royal Canadian Air Force Wings and Squadrons, on Royal Canadian Navy Ships at sea and in Army facilities.

Their primary responsibilities are to :

  • Observe and record surface, marine and upper air weather conditions
  • Process, analyze and interpret meteorological information
  • Operate and maintain specialized meteorological instruments and equipment
  • Brief wing, ship and land unit personnel on actual and expected weather conditions
  • Forecast weather conditions
  • Work environment

    Generally, meteorological observing offices are located near airfields. While much of a Meteorological Technician’s time is spent indoors in a weather office, duties require regular trips outdoors to observe and report on all types of weather phenomena.

    Meteorological Technicians work rotating shifts. In a Naval environment, they will work and live onboard a ship. If posted to an artillery unit, they will participate in field exercises under operational and combat conditions.
