Weather in the new Flatstyle Music and DM
is it correct the Satellite/Radar picture on the weather page is NOT animated but just a still pic?

thx for the quick reply.
Just wanted to make sure.
Here is something for those who might be interested in having animated radar images on their forecast.
I use it on my modified Flatstyle CCF's and works great:
- I replaced the frame with the satellite picture with a "web component" frame.
- You can register with wunderground.com weather forecast for free.
- Select NexRad Radar page and then the closest station near you.
- Then on the page that popups you can change several settings like frame speed, what kind of forecast you want and so on.
- Select "update map" and "remember settings". The radar map will now change and display the forecast depending your settings
- You will see an option at the bottom of the Radar picture that says "View / Save This Image". Click on that and a new page shows up with just the animated radar without anything else.
- Then I copied the address from that page in my NR Webbrowser component and resized the frame so the radar picture fills the frame without any sliders.
- If you like to have several different radar forecasts change to different settings at the wunderground website and link each page to a button in NR.
Maybe not everyone needs this but it is a nice feature.
