US Air Force Combat Weathermen are highly skilled and specially trained combat meteorologists assigned to, and supporting Joint, US Air Force and US Army Airborne and Special Operations Units worldwide. They have been performing their unique duties since WWII.

Combat Weather Teams are organized, trained and equipped to provide meteorological and oceanographic intelligence information in and for the special operations theaters of conflict. Duties performed range from staff support to ground combat operations, which include tactical infiltration, observing, forecasting, training indigenous personnel to take limited observations, and mission tailoring of environmental information.

Combat Weathermen perform their ground combat job from forward deployed bases and dropzones, or behind enemy lines using compact, tactical weather equipment and a variety of specialized communications systems.
