Thank you for the kind words. Siphon works by providing usable Python clients
to access web services hosted by Unidata and other data providers.
Unfortunately, unlike the NEXRAD Level 2 data available on AWS and other cloud
providers, we are not aware of any readily accessible, web data sources for
archived Level 3 products. Therefore, there's no way to implement any such
functionality in Siphon.
Please do let us know if you stumble upon some source.
Sorry I can't be more helpful,
