Black radar map background

I experience issues with animated radar GIFs. For some of them (not all) there is a black background instead of the normal map background.

This example is from Little Elm, TX. ZIP code 75068 is requested via API.

Is there an issue with the maps API endpoint?

I've been having same issue since Nov 5th.  It's about 50% of the time for me.
I send the delay option in the url and set the number of images to 5 for the animated gif.
The first 4 images are fine but have no delay between them and the last image has black background. When it works like it is supposed to there is a half second delay between images in the animated gif and the background is normal.

I received an answer from Wunderground support. They try to reproduce and fix the issue. It seems very intermittent, which is also what I experience. Hope they find the issue soon. If anyone experiences the same issues, please post it in here (with the API URL used). This may help them find the issue faster.
