How YR.no make the best weather site in Norway

Swedish Techworld magazine is running an in-depth article on how the Norwegian weather site YR.no works (Swedish only, unfortunately, but you could try Google Translate).
There are a couple of interesting facts presented that at least I did not know of before, like how meteorological data is available for free for anyone who wants it, and in a standardized format, circulated by the UN's WMO (World Meteorological Organization).
But even with all these data and models, the prognosis for yesterday claimed there would be no rain here in Oslo, while it in reality came pouring down. Better luck next time, I guess.
