Efforts to modernize forecasting career path spark debate at weather service
from Government Executive
The National Weather Service is attempting to establish a cadre of meteorologists capable of performing a number of different tasks, making employees more agile and useful to leaders in local government relying upon their joint expertise. The agency is looking to shift away from the more siloed workforce model it previously employed, while in the process ending its practice of requiring meteorologists to simply provide forecasts from their desks inside their offices.
