Multiple times during the day while retrieving a radar image the http "500 Status Code: Internal Server Error" is returned. Sometimes the error occurs for quite a long time during which the radar is offline. If the server issue could be resolved it would be greatly appreciated.
It is quite random and frequent. I just noticed when I wanted visually check certain radar image urls I generated. My app keeps trying a few times until it gets a valid response. Sometimes it has to try 20-30 times to get a valid image.
Errors are continuing this morning......

Since the Weather Underground radar mosaic service is no longer able to deliver up to date images I am unfortunately required to pull our newly developed SW Indiana Skywarn regional radar display from service. I will check back periodically on Weather Underground's progress in restoring this service since the quality radar images it was producing are very beneficial to our Skywarn operations.
Dubois County Skywarn (Indiana)
seems to be working fine now with no changes to my scripts.
For anyone still having this problem, I slowed the download rate to 20kb/s and seem to be getting consistent results now.
