The couple I use on my website are updating and current:

https://novawx.dscloud.me/ (satellite loop bottom right)
https://novawx.dscloud.me/wxradarmosaic-wu-ma.php (Mid-Atlantic Weather Radar Mosaic Reflectivity Loop)

I no longer use the WU radar products that you have on your homepage that are not working, so maybe it's just that product that WU has killed?

And 30 seconds after I posted my reply, I see the WU radar is once again displaying on your homepage! Must have been a temporary issue with WU.

Yes, they seem to have stopped generating the old format radar images around 9-Aug-2022.  Time to take that script out of the menu.

For the Base-USA distribution, I've now removed WU-radar-inc.php, WU-radar-testpage.php from the distribution, changed flyout-menu.xml to remove the link, and changed wxradar.php to handle missing WU-radar-inc.php gracefully. 

It has been a long-running script (first released by Tom of Carterlake 07-Jan-2008) and has been adapted over the years as WeatherUnderground tweaked with their website design.  Now it's time to say goodbye -- they apparently want to focus exclusively on the WunderMap for radar display and that's not really adaptable to our scripting for personal weather websites.

Doesn't look like you have that package added to your site.  So you don't have to.  But you could add it.  It isn't so much a radar image collection as it is a satellite image suite.  A couple of the infrared images are precip at different altitudes.  But not quite the same as the radar.

I just switched mine from the package that uses the GIF images, to the package that uses the latest JPG images.  Has more satellite views than just the GIF's.

If you look at my page, I'm running the "tabbed" version.  Which means you see both the GOES18 and GOES16 satellites at the top.  I just default to the GOES16 since that's our region.  GOES18 is the west coast system.

You can find this package on my scripts page.  It does take some savvy to get it installed, but you should be just fine!

Would this suffice?

https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/KMPX_loop.gif

I could definitely integrate that, however, I'm at a loss to find the proper "KMPX" code for Seattle. Any hints?

Thanks

I did see that in my search for Seattle.  But I was looking for something that was not as broad, perhaps just one county or so around me.
But thanks for the help.

Far superior radar display here AFAIC. You can zoom and move the image as well. Unfortunately, you're a long ways from all the sites, so your resolution isn't the best.

While it's not free ($79.95 for a lifetime license), there's always GRLlevel3 software (http://grlevelx.com/grlevel3_2/). It's highly customizable giving you full control of what and how you display on your website. I run two instances of GRLlevel3 to produce what I call a regional view (https://novawx.dscloud.me/wxradar-refl.php) and then a local (zoomed in) view (https://novawx.dscloud.me/wxgr3-refl.php). I still use WU for a broad mosaic view (https://novawx.dscloud.me/wxradarmosaic-wu-ma.php).
