    Weather Report 2.30.0 Radar

    Weather Report works fine, except for the "Radar Map". I have entered the correct web address of our weather forcast system and nothing appears in the "Map". Any suggestions? Address is "http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR023.loop.shtml#skip" for Melbourne Airport, Australia.

    Regards

    Looks like you put the page in there. You need to put just the address to the image.

    Wojox,

    Part of the problem could be that our maps are made up of a series of 4 images and displayed on the website as an animated gif. (check out the website)

    Not too sure on how to fix this one. Hence, the inquiry.

    Regards

    ps: managed to locate the image. Just have to wait and see if it updates. Wlll check every now and then.

    This is always the latest image for Melbourne, adjust code for other BOM sites:
