Kenneth’s Answer

Devetra,


If you want to be a meteorologist in the military, check out https://www.dfas.mil/militarymembers/payentitlements/military-pay-charts.html for all pay and entitlements.


There are other options and benefits available as well, depending on whether you enlist or seek a commission to be an officer.

Steve’s Answer

To broad of a question. It varies for what you want to do with it. A TV station? The weather channel? The Gov? That is a real hard question to answer. A Meteorologist at a TV station in a small market makes less than 40 a year. A big market, you can go to 60 - 70. After that, like the Hurricane Center, almost 100 a year.
