The vision of the South African Weather Service (SAWS) is to be a weather and climate centre of excellence providing: innovative solutions to ensure a weather-ready region, sustainable development, and economic growth through leadership in meteorological, climatological and other related sciences; development of relevant and innovative applications and products utilising cutting-edge technology; and establishing and leveraging collaborative partnerships.

SAWS is designated by the state to provide weather services to the aviation industry, marine, and a range of other identified clients, and to fulfill a range of international obligations of the government. It provides two distinct services, namely: public good services that are funded by government; and paid-for commercial services.
