Forecast site a hit with farmers

A website that has gone viral among farmers is an online weather forecasting service hosted by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute and the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.
The website, m.yr.no, is a county-based weather forecasting service provided in an easy-to-see-and-read format while on the tractor seat. This has proved useful, especially among farmers monitoring the forecast during the recent spell of good, haymaking weather, and it is updated hourly.
