Most meteorology jobs are low stress. There are certain aspects of the job that can put strain on your family and social life. If you wind up with a crazy shift at your weather station, you could be working nightshifts. Newbies are typically the fist candidates for those shifts. For this reason, you should get your newbie years out of the way before you get started on that whole "family" business, so you can be home to visit with your kids once in a while. If you don't, we predict stormy relationships in your future.
