Go Yr No for Info
There's no alternative to the weather itself - especially when approaching or exploring such places as North Rona, renowned for its high winds. However, there are different ways of accessing forecasts / conditions. A website - yr.no. - may be maintained by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation and the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, but supplies information about seven million places worldwide. Here's what's happening on North Rona. 'Yr' means light drizzle, although it can convey the impressions of giddy, joyful and wild; 'No' is Norway abbreviated. Still want to go cruising in the Atlantic waters - like the party above? See what Northern Light Charters has to offer.
