In Italy the Radar images are blank on the map tiles - i.e. we're not seeing anything in the map

Here is the URL we use. The image we get is blank unless there is some radar there. Not even a label or map.

We're working on fixing the basemap for Europe. Trust me though, its not pretty. You might be better off putting it over a Google/Bing/Open basemap. For now you can add a parameter to see the basemap we have at the moment. The white land will become brown when we are done fixing it.

If we do an overlay - how do we get the map's distance so we can properly know what to use? Is there a default value that the radar images always use or do we have to just make one up ourselves?

Play with the map with the basemap on and off to get your overlay right. If you're using a map interface, you could also figure out the lat/lon bounding box and request images that way: http://www.wunderground.com/weather/a...
