Like everything else, America’s missions around the globe are impacted by the weather. The mission of the Air Force Weather Agency (AFWA) is to maximize America's power through the exploitation of timely, accurate, and relevant weather information; anytime, everywhere.
AFWA consists of more than 1,400 active-duty, Reserve, civilian, and contract personnel and is headquartered on Offutt Air Force Base, Neb. Our meteorologists develop, direct, and coordinate meteorological weather studies and research to integrate current and forecasted atmospheric and space weather conditions into operational planning. We also hire weather technicians, responsible for assessing the impact weather conditions have on weapon systems and missions, whether on a global scale or specific to a particular military operation.
As part of AFCS, we are committed to something far more important than the bottom line. We work every day in the defense of our nation and the values we hold dear.

To ensure compliance with an applicable preliminary nationwide injunction, which may be supplemented, modified, or vacated, depending on the course of ongoing litigation, the Federal Government will take no action to implement or enforce the COVID-19 vaccination requirement pursuant to Executive Order 14043 on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees. Therefore, to the extent a Federal job announcement includes the requirement that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 pursuant to E.O. 14043, that requirement does not currently apply. Federal agencies may request information regarding the vaccination status of selected applicants for the purposes of implementing other workplace safety protocols, such as protocols related to masking, physical distancing, testing, travel, and quarantine.
