I am using BerryWeather version 2.0.63 and I am unable to get a radar map image of Houston, TX. I am using a zip code of 77389 which is Spring, TX. If I put in a Galveston zip code, I can see the radar map. In the version 2.0.63 version, there is a place to put in a URL for a "custom map/Webcam radar image. Can someone give me a URL for Houston, TX that will show a radar map? Currently I have Galveston as one of my locations only so I can see the radar. If I can get the radar to work from a Houston zip code, it would better suit my needs.

My other two locations in Maine and Seattle show radar maps with no problem.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Try:

http://www.accuweather.com/m/US/wigs.axd?city=SPRING&state=TX&w=480&h=360&type=_SI R&geoWidth=175&lat=$lat$&lon=$lon$&anim=10&af=10

or

http://www.accuweather.com/m/US/wigs.axd?city=HOUSTON&state=TX&w=480&h=360&type=_S IR&geoWidth=175&lat=$lat$&lon=$lon$&anim=10&af=10

Here's another Custom Radar Map for BerryWeather that shows a lot of detail about conditions:

http://radblast.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/radar/WUNIDS_composite?centerlat=$lat$&centerlon=$lon$&r adius=125&type=N0R&frame=0&num=$frames$&delay=15&w idth=$width$&height=$height$&newmaps=1&showstorms= 91&showlabels=1&severe=1&rainsnow=1&lightning=1&sm ooth=1

And a similar map without the detail conditions:
http://radblast.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/radar/WUNIDS_composite?centerlat=$lat$&centerlon=$lon$&r adius=125&type=N0R&frame=0&num=$frames$&delay=15&w idth=$width$&height=$height$&newmaps=1&r=124439328 2

(Note there should not be the space before the 2 in the last number of the last link but I can't get rid of it in the post)

Because both of these maps use variable data for location they can be used for any location.

jimroe and fonejunkie--thanks. Each of your links worked and I now have them on my BB. Mr. Sanders, I did try several different zip codes in Houston and couldn't seem to get any of them to pull up any radar map. Thanks again to all of you for your help on this. I appreciate it and Happy Holidays.

Switch the zip that does not get the radar over to cell location only, no GPS fallback or any other option. I had one location that would not get the radar and failed 1 out of three times to update. I played with it long enough and and figured this out. Now it works everytime set like this. Not sure if it is a glitch or what but it worked for me at that location.
