NWS Bay Area Meteorologist Opening

The San Francisco/Monterey National Weather Service Forecast Office is delighted to announce the posting of a vacancy for a Meteorologist position at the GS-5/7/9 level, with a closing date of July 9, 2024.  With the upcoming holiday, I want to encourage everyone interested to get their applications completed and submitted as soon as possible.  If you are unaware, we have the highest locality pay within the CONUS. 


We are physically located in Monterey, about 100 miles south along the coast from the city of San Francisco itself.  Opportunities here, both professionally and recreationally, are practically endless.  Within our CWA are the cities of San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose as well as the Silicon Valley, the famed Wine Country, and the multi-billion-dollar agricultural industry of the Salinas Valley.  The Mediterranean climate of the area makes it the most pleasant place to live on the planet, and yet the complex coastal topography results in a wide range of high-impact operational challenges across our public, marine, aviation and fire weather programs.  We serve an extraordinarily diverse population of 8 million people, and have strong relationships with many of our core and deep core partners.  

We are looking for a meteorologist who will be forward-thinking, energetic, and wants to serve their community.  Come join our welcoming diverse team, and be a part of the future of the NWS today.
