Meet the SpecOps Meteorologists

Did you know that even the special operations team needs a high speed weather report?  And in order to make that happen they need the skills and expertise of some unique (and hard core) meteorologists.

Meet the Special Operations Weather Team.

These airmen are Air Force meteorologists with unique training to operate in hostile or denied territory.  They gather, assess, interpret environmental data and forecast operational impacts from forward deployed locations, working primarily with Air Force and Army Special Operations Forces. Every Special Operations Forces mission is planned using the analyses and coordination of special operations weathermen.
