Weather science is amazing. It has amazing predictive skill compared to the other predictive endeavors.

And, think about this: Very few meteorologists make more than $150,000 (most significantly less). A tiny number more than $250,000. Of the people surveyed by the Wall Street Journal, almost all make into the seven figures. We save lives. They do not.

There is no question that meteorologists, as a rule, are underpaid and, most of all, under-appreciated.
