Bureau of Meteorology

Is anyone else sick of the BoM? Seriously, 40° days and 25° overnight? Why do they pull this crap this time every year?

I called them to complain, but the girl on the phone just insisted it wasn't their fault and it was an act of god, who I assumed is her manager. I asked to speak to this so-called "god" and she just hung up! This kind of behaiviour is totally unacceptable from a goverment organisation. As a taxpayer, I pay their salaries!

So I decided to find out who is really in control here; Like they say, just follow the money trail. After much digging I got onto the scent of a man named "Whippy". I don't have many other details, not even a first name, but he always seems to pop up when the BoM turn up the heat. Coincidence?

I am posting this to raise awareness of this conspiracy and hopefully we can get to the bottom of this. There must be a link between the so-called "Mr. Whippy" (if that is his real name) and this "god" character.

Down with the BoM and their cronies! Together, we shall defeat them!

I'm a 22-year-old 2-time CompEng university dropout. I'm considering going back to school to study meteorology, and I want advice and resources.

EDIT: Forgot to add post flair, and mobile won't let me do it for some reason. Sorry, mods. :\

First, some background (and mild sob-story):

I was my high school's salutatorian and went to college to study computer engineering the Fall after I graduated from high school. Six weeks later, I was in a psychiatric ward. I eventually returned to give it another go and finished three semesters (including a class on differential equations, FTR), but just a few weeks into the fourth, I had to drop out again due to my worsening mental health. To be clear, college didn't make me mentally ill – I've been depressed since 11th grade – but it was definitely not making me feel better. Frankly, by the end of my (second) freshman year, I was only still pursuing CompEng because of the scholarships, money, and time I'd already put into it. I wasn't passionate about the subject.

Recently, I've been considering what to go back to school for when my mental health is under control. I was leaning towards getting a PhD in political science and looking for an academic/research position, but I recently learned that the job market for that is brutal. Even with a PhD, I'd still be playing the lottery, essentially. And I definitely would not want to go into the private sector or work for some advocacy/lobbying group with my PhD; my interest in the field would be in research and adding to the knowledge base of polisci. I feel similarly about economics, another major I've considered, and if the job market for econ is anything like polisci, it's a non-starter for me as well. Film studies, I reckon, is an even worse job market.

Meteorology, on the other hand, is a field I'd be fine with having a private sector job in. Granted, it's not something I have a lot of prior experience in, and I can't say I've had a life-long, die-hard passion for weather. However, I've been looking into it recently – listening to WeatherBrains, watching Forecast Lab and WeatherNation, and chipping away at a book about weather basics – and it's fascinating. I can't really explain what draws me in, but I've always held a lot of respect for meteorologists and reverence for the weather itself. Like politics, it's a subject I feel like I can dig deeper into without feeling burnt out. And unlike politics (or economics, or film studies), I feel more optimistic about my job prospects in meteorology and more open to different kinds of work.

That said, I don't know how good the job market for meteorology is gen

Is majoring in meteorology worth it?

I’ve looked at several different majors and have come to decision of straying away from anything medical or mechanical... I like having interesting perspectives on the world and want a career that allows me to discover more about the world in my own geeky kind of way. The only big concerns I have is over job availability and pay. I’ve always been an honor student and my family has high hopes for me as far as salary goes I guess. How achievable would you consider getting to 100k salary (or close) would be in this career field and for what specific types of meteorology? Also back to my main point of typing this out, 😅 is majoring in meteorology worth it?

Meteorology experience

Hi r/Meteorology

It comes to a point of every student's life, that they have to give up some of their precious habits, like eating Tesco-made pizza for 2 weeks in a row and start thinking more broadly about the future. Even though Covid has prevented me from this healthy and balanced diet this year and I have to educate myself remotely, the end is coming nonetheless (sounds pretty depressing tbh).

Since I still have good half a year ahead, my question is (if you have followed the same pattern or maybe just know the steps from here), where to look for potential Meteorology-related experience/internships. I have looked at, for instance, Met Office in the UK but they seem to be very specific about their requirements (for instance, you have to study undergraduate sandwich course to be eligible). I'm a postgraduate student and I'm really desperate to get some of the industry experience, but I struggle to find a place where I could find whether-related internships which I could be eligible for (again, it doesn't matter where or when, as most of the work would happen remotely nowadays I imagine). My girlfriend studies and works in the medical world and it is so much easier to get an experience there (especially nowadays...) but obviously size of the industry is incomparable.

Hence my question, do you know/can suggest any websites/companies/tips&tricks how and where to apply/look for? I would be very very grateful for any advice or help, as just googling hasn't proven too frutiful so far🌞🌝

Meteorology Questions

Hello, I am currently a junior in high school and I took a earth science course that involved meteorology. It was so fascinating and the class is even making me question what I should go into have hs. I would be down to major in meteorology, as well as go to grad school, but I have some concerns that I thought would be best to ask here:

  1. Are meteorologists going to be automated in the near future? I really am interested in the behind the scenes work dealing with weather, climate, and the environment but I am unsure if forecasters as well as the behind the scenes meteorologists are going to get automated.
  2. Do meteorologists have to be on television? I was told that there are some meteorologists that work and analyze behind the scenes and if that is true, what would that job kind of consist of?
  3. Do meteorologists focus at all on climate change? Climate change is a topic that I am extremely passionate about in terms of discussing, and I was wondering if that is a topic that some meteorologists focus on.

Sorry for all of these questions, but I am extremely intrigued by this field of study!

Is Chemistry a must-have course if you're planning on being an atmospheric science or meteorology major somewhere?

So I was doing some zoom meetings earlier with some schools that offer meteorology that I am interested in. One of them in particular, California University out of Pennsylvania doesn't require it but the other ones that are on my list apparently do. So over the weekend I'm going to be debating on whether I want to drop the Chemistry or not says it won't transfer over there. I had a chat with one of the transfer office's employees there and I asked for an unofficial evaluation but I didn't get the evaluation back till yesterday afternoon I believe. But I was surprised when I checked their curriculum that chemistry wasn't on there from what I was told theirs is pretty stringent and there's no room that much for electives from what I understood during our conversation. I'm leaning towards keeping the chemistry even though I may lose it there just to have as insurance in case I decide to go to one of my safeties. I'm trying to have a list of at least 10 schools that I'll give higher priority in my top five on the off chance I don't get into one of them. Florida tech is another one on my list so I've got plenty of options I was just trying to get some second opinions, so I don't make a decision to hastily that will later regret.

What is the meteorology community's general view of Weather Modification?

I am a soon-to-be college grad and am looking for meteorology jobs. I found one that is pretty interesting, but is in the weather mod field. Based on the website it looks like mainly cloud seeding and water conservation. I'm not super familiar with weather mod but it seems interesting. My only hesitation is that everything I've ever heard about weather mod is conspiracy related and people talking about how it's fake. That's usually from people outside of the weather community, though.

So I was just wanting to know what the meteorology community thinks. I don't want to move a few states away for a job that if I eventually realize isn't for me, will make the NWS or other meteorology company look down upon me. Is weather mod viewed legitimately in the meteorology community?

To be a meteorologist - earn a Second Bachelors in Meteorology from Engineering? or straight to grad school?

So it has always been a dream of mine to be a meteorologist at some point in my life, yet I am two semesters away from graduating with a degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering. Earning a second bachelor's shouldn't be too tedious, given that there is overlap with foundational courses (genEds, physics, chemistry).

However, when I brought up the idea to people a common response I heard is to go straight to a Masters degree. Would I be qualified? Would it even be worth it?

I need advice to know if I should go into meteorology

I love weather, especially snow. My whole life I was fascinated by weather and to this day still love it. Like I live in the north east US and today I was constantly refreshing my weather apps to see if the storm that was happening here changed. I am pretty good with my sciences and math courses. I am also very passionate about climate change which ties in well with meteorology. However, I don't know if I should go into this feild. I am very worried about the pay and the possible Job opportunities in the future. Ive been thinking about majors in political science as well as something in the medical field, so I don't know if I should look into those more rather than meteorology. I am a senior in high school and Im really stressed out about this, hence why I'm here. So far, I have been accepted into many colleges, some of which offer meteorology (most well known one being Penn State). So I am basically writing this post to see what you guys think. If you would share your experience with the job and give your input. I don't know if weather should be a hobby or a career. Sorry this post was written so poorly, I am just really stressed out and it's kind of late at night for me. Thanks

Good undergrad level books on meteorology

Hi there, was wondering if I could get recs on good undergrad level books on meteorology. As an avid amaeteur landscape photographer understanding of the weather is extremely important so I can put myself in the right place at the right time. I have basic familiarity with reading sat maps, skew-t plots, some rudimentary concepts - isobars, CAPE index ,etc. Apps such as Windy go a long way towards making my life easier but I would like to dig deeper, for example so I can understand the NOAA forecast discussions better. Have an advanced degree in physics and understand of the basics so I don't need popsci level introduction but rather a resource that perhaps is used as an introductory text in undergrad meteorology course. Any help much appreciated.

I need advice as to whether I should pursue a degree in meteorology or political science.

Hey everyone,

I’m a senior in high school, and I’ve gotten into some good colleges that offer both degree programs. For all of them I put my intended major as meteorology, but I’m now starting to reconsider it. Here’s why.

Math has not always been my strongest suit. I didn’t necessarily hate it, I just had a lot of trouble with second-guessing myself with it. Seriously, throughout high school I’ve maintained A’s and B’s (more B’s though) in any math course or science courses like physics and chemistry, but I just get very nervous when I have to take math tests and most of the time the problems I get wrong are ones I either second-guess or blank because I panic. However, I have a really strong passion for the weather and am fascinated by it/eager to learn about the atmosphere and it’s dynamics.

On the other hand, my interest in political science ignited after the 2016 presidential election ended. I studied on my own time the USA’s political system, our Constitution and it just really intrigued me. I have heard that it’s difficult to get a job with a political science degree unless you intend on becoming a lawyer or international relations, which is interesting but not my cup of tea. I have heard that some math like statistics is involved in the coursework too.

I’m of course willing to work hard, study, and take all opportunities to learn. But I just want to make the right decision. If you guys can offer me some advice and/or personal experiences in these degree programs I would really appreciate it! Thank you :)

Are all Meteorology Masters maths based?

As a last ditch attempt at getting a job in the Meteorology sector I am cautiously exploring masters. Now I have searched high and low for experience and cannot gain any. I am very concerned that a masters would have me in the same position with limited employment prospects.

I am looking at this Masters: http://www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-study/study/subject-area/meteorology-and-climate-pg/msc-applied-meteorology.aspx

My query is in relation to mathematics. My bachelor degree had a lot of Mathematics that I had to work hard with, some modules only just passing. So I do not want to repeat that. I see some modules such as “Atmospheric Physics” that appear to have a lot of maths involved.

Would this be the case and thus a waste of my time studying? Are there Meteorology Masters that do not have high Mathematical content? What about Meteorology Master degrees that combine other subjects alongside placements?

What is the difference between "Weather" and "Meteorology" and what should I use

I'm building a website with different web tools and I created a category that would store weather/meteorological tools.

Now my question is, how should I name this category:

"Weather Tools" or "Meteorological Tools"?

Here are some examples of the tools:

Temperature Converter

Wind Speed Converter

Humidity Calculator

Air Pressure Converter

Wind Chill Calculator

Heat Index Calculator

What would be the best name for this category?

Related information from wikidiff.com:

>As nouns the difference between weather and meteorology is that weather is the short term state of the atmosphere at a specific time and place, including the temperature, humidity, cloud cover, precipitation, wind, etc while meteorology is the science that deals with the study of the atmosphere and its phenomena, especially with weather and weather forecasting.

There are a few I've found through Google but I'm pretty hesitant to trust generic star ratings and I figured that the type of person who joined this sub is the type of person I'd like to take a recommendation from.

I'd like something more popsci-ish but I'm not intimidated by more technical aspects though obviously I'm unlikely to sit down and read a university textbook. Unless meteorology textbooks are really good and I chose the wrong science.

I have no clue weather or not this type of question is allowed on this sub so I hope I'm not stepping on any toes!
