  1. Slow down the loop

    Loop is way too fast. On other services I use a 20 or 30 minute loop. Changed yours to one hour. that helps some but the loop still runs WAY too fast. PLEASE Slow it down or give us the option to control the loop speed.

  2. Something wrong with weather station location

    I have my US Weather Radar app on Windows 8.1, using latest Chrome version. I have set it to zip code 23832, which is Chesterfield, Va.....but the app thinks it's Jacksonville, NC.

    Thanks! forrest fire is related to the weather but not directly expression of weather. we are reviewing how to handle this.

    Fire overlay has been added. You can find it in the pulldown in the upper right (maybe reload needed)

  4. why is there no local time synced to radar activity - and displayed to users

    a little clock on the edge of screen like NOAA has?

  5. change default radar map size

    I like your US Weather Radar gadget I am using on igHome. I would like to change the default radar map size. not to always have it refresh on my city, but rather have the entire region of the country as a possibilty.
    Basically, save the last radar "region" as the default maybe as an option in the config page.

    There are 2 options to store the map region (zoom).

    You can configure the zoom in the config menu. Option is named “Zoom”.

    Or you can hit “update” in the lower left menu to store the selected map view.

  9. provide 2 hours of activity

    If you could see your way to providing two hours of animation (say 8 cells) instead of three panels, we could tell which way the weather was moving and how fast. The current three panels make that impossible and they are often incomplete, so we have no idea which one is accurate, or first. A reflection of how much we use and appreciate this service.

    Implemented

    Thank you very much for your comment!

    You are suggesting to offer 8 animation steps over 2 hours. One aspect is that it means loading more data then with 3 animation steps which we wanted to keep low.

    You would not have an issue with this addtl data load?

    Regards the present step you can also look to the minute or time counter on the lower left which shows which step is currently displayed.

    Maybe that helps as well?

    Please let us know.

    Thanks,
    Ken

  11. Enlarge to full page

    I set Netvibes to single column (full screen), set the widget to full screen, but it still displays as a small map in the center of the box, with vast amounts of white space all aroyund. How do I get a larger map to display?

    Did you try setting the height of the map to “full” in the URL or config (“Height of Map”)? This should be enough.

    You can also play with the width setting in the config.

    Thanks,
    Ken

  12. Weather Badge issue?

    I am using the Weather Badge in Google Chrome. It's been working well, but this morning I noticed that the temperature icon located at the top right corner of the browser is not updating the temperature figure, and if I click on it, I get the current temperature, but the figure in the icon still doesn't update. First time I've seen this issue.

    We have checked it and it seems to work fine. When there is new data the temp is updated as well.

    We do not load the weather info too often as there is cost associated to it. You can order a subscription for the stand-alone US Weather Radar webpage to help fund US Weather Radar.

    In case new weather data is retrieved the temp should be updated. Checking.

    Hovering over the ZIP link in the lower left provides the history of locations.

    About the weather station we need the details of your ZIP configured and which station is chosen.

  14. Make it so the service works for my location every time I start the program instead of having to reenter my zip every time.

    I paid for the subscription, but every time I start the program I still have to configure it for my zip code. As long as my browser is up, it works, but whenever I restart my computer, I have to restart the program, enter my license and zip. What is the point of buying in?

  15. Temperature & Humidity & Barometric Chart for past 24 hours back.

    I see that your site gives a forecast for temperature which is good. I like many want to see why we had such a bad night's sleep or why something went wrong with say a crop that got too cold or some process we need to know if the temp or humidity reading went too low too fast or didn't make it to a given point. Or what the Barometric pressure was that may contribute to windy conditions or even affect those with arthritis. I have only seen a few programs that give this valuable information. Put in these historical…

  16. Settings under "Config" at lower left corner corner of screen keep getting lost.

    Settings under "Config" at lower left corner corner of screen keep getting lost. Multiple times a week I have to reenter my settings. I save them using the "save" button, or "save with google", I double check and triple check that I'm still allowing cookies.....and still the settings keep getting lost.

    Save with google should help.


    This is very, very strange.

    At least the settings in the cloud should stay available and not disappear.

    Which browser on which OS are you using?

    maybe we will create a special debug version. are you comfortable looking at the javascript console or prefer alert popping up?

    how do you use US Weather Radar? Standalone webpage in the browser or e.g. in ighome.com ?

    thanks,
    ken

  19. Fix map locations

    I enter my zip code under "Config", but the location the map gives me for the weather forecast is off base by 20 miles. When I click on a location on the map itself, I get a location that is off base by even more.

    The forecast data shown is exactly for the location you specified.

    The number of weather stations we can show with the new data provider is more limited and might be further away than before.

    If you want a closer weather station you can choose “Best weather station” in the configuration

  20. "remove the ground clutter"

    when zooming in... the ground clutter is very noisy! Can this be cleaned up?
