Time interval on radar image

  • Updated 2 years ago
Has anyone been able to get the time interval between frames to work on radar?
I've changed it a few times and it never seems to make a difference.
Is this a satellite only feature?
I'm using "&interval=60"

try "delay" which will change how long the frame is there

Thanks Brendan, is there any way to change the amount of time between the radar snapshots? It's 6 minutes right now.

The docs for radar+satellite combined imagery list and interval parameter. You could try that out on just radar?

Yeah I'm only using radar and not sat, this is basically the link I'm using atm;

api.wunderground.com/api/API-KEY/animatedradar/image.gif?centerlat=38.409&centerlon=-121.371&radius=100&width=300&height=300&newmaps=1&num=5&basemap=1&delay=20&interval=60&noclutter=1&smooth=1&rainsnow=1

The &delay=20&interval=60 part is what I was having trouble with
the &delay is 20ms for the gif frames, the &interval is in minutes between radar data

No, the delay works fine, when I put the interval as 60 it still shows snapshots about 6 minutes apart like the timestamps in the image above
