Weather Report Setup with custom Radar Map

You'll need to make sure two packages are installed, libgweather& libgweather1. Many Linux distributions come with these packages pre-installed, so you may be able to skip package installation. If you are using Ubuntu or any other distribution that has the Software Center you can install them by using it. The hyperlinks below can be used to setup custom radar maps depending on your location.

Radar …provided by NOAA


Alaska Sector

Hawaii Sector

Pacific Northwest Sector

Northern Rockies Sector

Upper Mississippi Valley Sector

Central Great Lakes Sector

Northeast Sector

Pacific Southwest Sector

Southern Rockies Sector

South Plains Sector

Southern Mississippi Valley Sector

Southeast Sector

You can also use other maps, not just these from NOAA, if their copyrights or terms of use allow you to do so. Look for a link to the animated gif of the map and copy and paste the link into Weather Report as shown above.
