The type of scientist that is in charge of studying the weather is called a climatologist. Some people assume that scientists who study the weather are meteorologists but you should understand that they are different. When you say meteorology, you are studying weather forecasting.

You are trying to predict what the weather is going to be tomorrow and even the day after. Climatologists would be studying the weather in a more in-depth manner. This means that they would be checking out some of the things that are not studied by meteorologists anymore. Take note that meteorologists may also study climate events.

An individual who studies weather is called a meteorologist. A meteorologist studies meteorology (a science that deals with the study of the atmosphere and its phenomena). A meteorologist is a professional in the field of meteorology who specializes in using scientific principles to understand, forecast, and explain the Earth's atmospheric phenomena.

The information regarding weather forecasting is prepared by a meteorologist, and it is because such an individual has been trained to forecast weather conditions. It is important to note that meteorology is not the same as climatology. Climatology is a different field that deals with climates by investigating their causes and phenomena.

An individual who studies climatology is known as a climatologist. A well-trained climatologist will be able to give explanations about the forces that affect certain atmospheric patterns, especially long-term weather pertains. Meteorologists are also qualified to research and predict climate change. They also help to develop proper weather prediction models.
