NWS regional radar
« on: August 02, 2020, 10:31:17 AM »
Hi guys,
My NWS regional radar went to SW California overnight. I didn't touch anything for a few days, so it's weird.
Anyways, how can I get that to change back to SE Florida where it used to be? I've looked and it appears all of my radar settings and coordinates are correct.
Thank you!

Your Settings.php seems to be missing some settings:

The new NWS map specification in Settings.php uses:
Code: [Select]
$SITE['NWSregion'] = 'sw'; // NOAA/NWS regional radar maps
// 'ak' = Alaska,
// 'nw' = Northwest, 'nr' = Northern Rockies, 'nm' = North Mississippi Valley,
// 'nc' = Central Great Lakes,  'ne' = Northeast,
// 'hi' = Hawaii,
// 'sw' = Southwest, 'sr' = Southern Rockies, 'sc' = Southern Plains,
// 'sm' = South Mississippi Valley, 'se' = Southeast
and for the left-hand map.

The WU IR Satellite map specification uses:
Code: [Select]
$SITE['WUsatellite'] = 'sw'; // Wunderground regional satellite maps
// ="nw" North West, ="nc" North Central, ="ne" North East,
// ="wc" West Central, ="ce" Central, ="ec" East Central,
// ="sw" South West, ="sc" South Central, ="se" South East,
// ="us" United States (Conus)
for the right-hand map.

Because they're missing in Settings.php, the default maps are 'sw' for the NWS and 'us' for the Satellite/IR WU map.

Oh boy. I got it, thank you. I accidentally uploaded an older version of settings.php the other night and must not have realized the image was wrong until now.
Thank you, Ken.
