New: "Beer Index" Added to Yahoo Japan Weather Forecast

Web sites add info on beers, ice creams, UV rays to summer weather forecasts
Advertising, info, and beer. Could be a winner! (-:

Yahoo Japan's online weather service is providing four extra "indexes" during the summer months this year: a "beer index," a "heat-exhaustion index," a "sweat index," and a "UV ray index."

The beer index covers 138 points across Japan, rating the best days to drink beer on a 10-level scale. Among the suggestions are, "90: It's sweltering! Don't forget to cool the beer," and "70: It's hot! Beer will probably go down well today."
