Whenever I book a vacation, I always check the weather before I go – not that it would prevent me from traveling, but it does give me a better idea of what to pack – a sweater? Shorts? Bathing suit or umbrella?

My last trip was to Italy, and so they have an excellent weather site with short and long term forecasts. I simply looked up the word for “weather” in Italian (meteo) and then found that there is a site www.meteo.com where you can see the local weather forecasts for every corner of italy. Of course, all of this great information appears in Italian, so if you can not understand Italian, you are out of luck… that is, of course, unless you have the Babylon plugin installed – then it’s a snap!

Businesspeople can use this to find new suppliers in far corners of the world and even customers – the possibilities are endless.
