Looks like the Gaylord Office, APX, is back up and running.
Hope it holds.

I emailed the Gaylord NWS office about it a couple of days ago.

The graphics on the images without "_BOX" are now out of date. The projections have come down since those were originally issued.   :sad:

Sigh. They are back to using the file names w/o "_BOX". Going to see if I can figure out an easy way to determine which is in use (possible to scrape the "winter" page they display, although I'd like to avoid that).

Meanwhile I'll revise the script.  Thanks, Jasiu!

Comparing the file creation dates, if accessible, on the two image schemes might provide a switch point?  I would flounder around a lot before I successfully scripted that.

Revised script now available on my scripts page.

The "last-modified" HTTP header field appears to be accurate for the image times. I have some test code in my sandbox now and will let it simmer for a while.

Nice script! It's working fine for me after installing it this morning. Looking at the first possible snow of the season in Northern Virginia tomorrow.

Glasgow is no longer an exception.

An updated script can be found here.

Thanks to a persistent user a dead link to the NWS has been eliminated from the script.

Thanks to this user the link has been updated to display the selected WFOs home page.  I feel that this is a better landing spot for the curious viewer than the WPCs home page.  This required slight revision of the primary and the includes scripts, so be sure to upload all after youve customized the primary and if desired the StandAlone scripts to your preferred WFO.

The primary script now hunts for the StandAlone script and displays the link only if its found and the active script isnt the StandAlone one.

As usual the revised scripts are available here.

I just noticed my graphic is no longer updating.  Last update shows Feb 2.  Their site shows last Feb 4.

Somebody's asleep at the switch there.  You might prod them with a gently worded email.  I don't see any reason to update to a less outdated, but still outdated, graphic.

It looks like they're back on the job at Bismarck after a long winter's nap. [tup]

Yeah, I'm guessing someone went on vacation.  To someplace warmer...  :-)
