Civil Aviation MET office

During the late 1970’s the Department of Civil Aviation become very concerned about the supply of weather information to pilots using the Grand Cayman airport. The problem was becoming particularly acute as the aviation traffic was increasing significantly.

An so, the Director of Civil Aviation carried out a review of meteorological development of the Cayman Islands on 11-19th March 1982. As a part of the plan, a two-day visit to Jamaica was carried out to meet with the Director of the Jamaican Meteorological Service. The visit to Jamaica was necessary as they provided some weather information already and were now being asked to take over the responsibility for TAF’s and severe weather warnings.

At the 19th Region 4 Hurricane Committee meeting, held in Nassau, Bahamas on 10th July 1997, the Cayman Islands Weather service was given the responsibility for the issuing of Sever Warning, TAF’s etc for the Cayman area. Additionally, an observing branch was opened in Cayman Brac 2003.
