metFile <- download.met(id=6358, year=2003, month=9, destdir=".")
met <- read.met(metFile)
met <- oceSetData(met, "time", met[["time"]]+4*3600,
                 note="add 4h to local time to get UTC time")

Using download.met avoids having to navigate the the awkward Environment Canada website, but it imposes the burden of having to know the station number. See the documentation for download.met for more details on station numbers.
