The National Weather Service’s Honolulu meteorologist-in-charge and the director of the Central Pacific Hurricane Center is retiring this month.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says Jim Weyman is due to retire tomorrow after 15 years in Hawaii and 40 years with the federal government.

The office’s Director of Operations, Raymond Tanabe, will succeed Weyman in an acting capacity. 

Weyman was a U.S. Air Force meteorologist for 20 years before he began working for the National Weather Service in the 1990s. He assumed his current post in 1996. 

NOAA says Weyman successfully guided the office through numerous notable weather events, including Hawaii’s infamous "40 days and 40 nights" of rain in 2006 and the Halloween or Manoa Flood of 2004 which caused extensive damage to the University of Hawaii.
