Sources of radar loop images

(1/2) > >>

For years, I have bookmarked this Accuweather image (https://sirocco.accuweather.com/nx_mosaic_640x480_public/sir/inmasiria_.gif) which is an animated gif of radar for my area.  Even though the image is copyrighted 2022, it appears to no longer be updated.  WU has a radar loop that works the same way but I'm not going to post the address for fear that I will bring it bad luck and it will go away shortly, too.  (PM me if you want it.)  I like to have more than one radar source because they appear to have different sensitivities to precipitation at different altitudes.

Most of the regional TV stations have switched to the live, interactive radar which takes a while to load, along with the ads on the same page.  Of course, on TV they show a radar loop that would be perfect for viewing on a phone with a weak signal but keep it to themselves for only broadcast use.  I have found a decent (not great) NOAA/NWS radar image (https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/lite/UPPERMISSVLY_loop.gif) which I'll likely use but I'm still wondering - does anyone know of other free or low-cost sites/services that have nice, fast-loading radar loops?  I don't mind unobtrusive ads and prefer regional radars for my area.

That looks like RadarScope. I hesitate to ask but how are you publishing radar images from that app?

;) Well, right now it's quite the experimental lashup:

Desktop to Sparkocam to Netcam Studio with SSL installed.
 #-o I like it 'cause I can switch radars in a jiffy, and Sparkocam isn't named after me, but I really like that application, one of the best I've ever played with. Netcam Studio is a pain in the butt, and needs some updating, IMO.. but...

That is nothing short of an impressive effort!  =D>
