Radar different from Wundermap

I'm worried that our local radar isn't accurate. When I zoom out to the nation and compare to Wundermap, it's the same. But zoomed in to a specific area shows differences. I see several minor green blips on the api, but they don't show up on the Wundermap nor on the weather.com radar view. So, is the API either more accurate than these other maps or is it showing inaccurate information? The specific area I'm looking at is around Lake George and Ticonderoga, NY. Thanks!

The API and the 2 websites are using different processing code now, and the API shows more low level rain that might just be clouds.  The data is all from the same source, the API is just showing more of it, and the 2 websites are filtering it out.
