US Weather Radar Module updated

This update of the US Weather Radar Module offers the following new features:
  • Choosing the background of the radar view. You can select between the normal map, the satellite image and the road/border overlay from the hybrid view.

  • Selecting the opacity of the radar view. This does not work too well with Internet Explorer because of limitations of IE.

  • Display of wind directions is now an option in the configuration section. Default is to show wind directions.

  • Triggering the reload of the map.
  • The update covers the expressed need of several users to see the borders between land/sea better. Now you can choose what the underlying images should be.

    Please let us know your comments and suggestions for improvements!

    WeatherBug is nice, agreed! :) Except, I can't change the station. It's stuck on "Monroe MS". I've tried in Mozilla and in IE 6.0.2900.2180.

    Concerning the update:

    :: changing the station is not supported until now - will be in the next release. Right now the station is defaulted from the ZIP entered.

    ::Clicking the Station ID should bring you to a larger present weather info - if there is an error please send a screenshot.

    :: You can drag the weatherbug window (at the white areas) to the place you want it to be
