Job Description: Make forecasts for our clients which range from DPW’s/Highway Departments to School Districts and private contractors who use our daily and storm forecasting service.

Anyone east of NYC (on Long Island) would pose a commuting problem at times.

Only 20-30 hours per week initially which may lead to full time.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Meteorology
  • Strong understanding of weather processes and forecasting techniques with a strong hold in synoptic meteorology
  • Ability to forecast for snow and ice clients but will train
