Your radar images are using radar.wunderground.com and that host is not resolving in DNS currently.

You might consider using images from radblast.wunderground.com instead -- those images are current.

No, the traditional "rain year" here is July to June, but in reality that's the 4 months from October onwards. Jan was 11.6", wettest single month for several years. Another week of rain coming too  :)

Yup, thanks, understanding radblast's url structure is on my list for today  :)

just an n.b. In 2015, the California NWS offices began using the hydrology "Water Year" definition which uses October 1 to September 30 as the period. Previously, the offices had used July 1 to June 30 as the period.

Right, I've been ignoring that  :oops:  July - September rain here is almost always negligible so it's not a big source of error and I don't know what WD would do if the setting is changed now :dontknow:

I'm OK now with single radar sites on radblast, but I can't find an equivalent for this regional map https://www.wunderground.com/data/640x480/radarb1.gif which is no longer updated  :(
