“NOAA Data Helps Retail and Manufacturing Business Minimize Impacts from Weather and Climate”

NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information put out a very interesting article and accompanying video on how their climate and weather data are used in management decisions by businesses and manufacturing plants to minimize economic losses. Of course farmers already do this to help plan farm activities and determine crop varieties to plant, but you might be interested in how other folks use this information. Be sure to check out the link to the 6-minute video on the right side of the page at .https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/news/noaa-data-helps-retail-and-manufacturing-business-minimize-impacts-weather-and-climate. A second video on how the NCEI data are used by agricultural producers can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxVG6HEVpcg.
