    The best way I've seen is to use the weather channel image. All you need is their location code which is easy enough to find. Only tricky thing is you need to 'screen-scrape' the radar image, it's not a simple image file to download. But using C# it's not all that bad. I'm starting to look at modifying the weather plugin that way.

    For example, here is the one for my area (Western New York, USA):
    http://w3.weather.com/weather/map/14472?from=LAPmaps&setcookie=1

    The 14472 is my zipcode (postal code).

    They have images for all over the world, though outside of the US they are less detailed.

    I think it would be cool if we could attach several radar images to our Weather. Than I could see a cloud loop and a rain loop. Plus I could see temperatures, etc.

    Seems like it wouldn't be too bad to do.

    weather images for denmark are avalible here

    http://asp.geogr.ku.dk/noaa/dk2.jpg

    these are not named by date and time, and should therefore always provide the most recent updated sat picture.

    EDIT: Where in the source can I edit the names of the images like UV index... (In Plugin and Config.)
