Senior Television Weather Broadcaster Meteorologist Job to Reach 1.5 Billion People

Accuweath­er needs a Senior Tele­vi­sion Weath­er Broad­cast­er in their world head­quar­ters in State Col­lege Pennsylvania.

Imag­ine doing the weath­er fore­cast for over 1.5 bil­lion peo­ple every day!

Mete­o­rol­o­gy is a more than 2,400 year old pro­fes­sion that dates back to Aris­to­tle and ear­ly Greece. Greek philoso­phers of that era con­duct­ed the ear­li­est known sci­en­tif­ic stud­ies of the weath­er. It was in that peri­od that Aris­to­tle wrote Mete­o­ro­log­i­ca (340 BC), a sem­i­nal work dis­cussing var­i­ous atmos­pher­ic phe­nom­e­na, as well as geol­o­gy, shoot­ing stars and oceanography.

At the time, the word “mete­or” referred to rain, hail, clouds, snow, rain­bows, etc., any sub­stance sus­pend­ed in the air or that fell from the sky. (Even today, cloud physi­cists and oth­er sci­en­tists refer to rain­drops as hydrom­e­te­ors.) Since most of Aristotle’s Metero­log­i­ca dealt with weath­er phe­nom­e­na and his views on how they occurred, “mete­o­rol­o­gy” came to be used when refer­ring to the study of weath­er and the atmosphere.
