Qa review- The license indicates that there is data in a machine readable format. I found the data in XML format and changed the submission.

Submission 2015-11-23: - Changed publisher to the meteorological institute, in stead of, which re-use their data. - Changed bulk-download from "Unsure" to "Yes". - Changed link to data to point to the Norwegian Meteorological Institute's web page about open data. From that page, there's links to and for weather forecasts and to other services for bulk-downloads and historical data.
