[IDD #HUS-393958]: Scripting access to 2km 1 hour raw precipitation radar data (national mosaic) data

Hi Tammy,

I apologize for the very slow reply to your inquiry...

There are better ways to get data like the 2 km, 1-hour composite imagery:
setup an LDM and get the data pushed to you as soon as it is available.
The only issue with doing things this way is identifying an upstream
site that is willing to feed you (AIR Worldwide).

Those wishing to get the data continuously (as opposed to episodically)
are better served by installing an LDM and getting fed the data as
soon as it is available.

Please let us know if you are interested in pursuing an LDM-based solution
to your need.
