Careers in Meteorology

How much do meteorologists earn?

You should never pick a career solely based on its earning potential. Pick something you love, and then go from there. That being said, meteorologists make very good wages indeed. As of 2009, average salaries ranged from $70,000 to $108,000 annually. On the low end, the salary for a degree-holding meteorologist was about $53,000; at the upper end, a meteorologist in a specialized field with a Ph.D. can easily make $125,000 a year.
