The client wants a continuously updating weather radar image displayed on a computer monitor in the ops center. I seriously doubt anyone offers free streaming weather radar online and I dont think the client fully understands that the image he sees when he pulls up NOAA never changes unless he refreshes it.
One idea Ive come up with is to invoke IE from command line with a URL, like:
which opens the radar image in a browser. With XPs tskill or ntsd commands I could kill the IE process after X minutes, then restart the batch file. Crude but effective.
Anyone know of a better way (extra points for style)? Or of a WX radar site with free streaming?
Other than NOAA, these are a couple I use from time to time. "WeatherUnderground" has the best hurricane tracking stuff with computer models, etc.. These are probably the best "free" sites I've found.
Hope these help.
