        employee of the National Weather Service--
                    ``(i) who occupies a nonmanagerial position in GS-
                14 or under; and
                    ``(ii) as determined by the Secretary of Commerce, 
                whose position involves--
                            ``(I) duties that are critical to the 
                        immediate daily operation of the forecast and 
                        warning responsibilities of the National 
                        Weather Service and directly affect public and 
                        aviation safety; and
                            ``(II) overtime work that is usually 
                        unscheduled due to the vicissitudes of severe

        employee, and all that amount is premium pay.''.
