Inspired by Develop your own weather maps and alerts with Perl and GD
, I have put together a script which downloads the base radar image from a specific site at a specified interval.
my $refresh = 1800;
my $timestring = strftime( "%Y%m%d_%H%M%S", gmtime() );
my $savefilename = "SLCRadar_".$timestring.".gif";
my $status = getstore($base,$savefilename);
print $status."\n" ;
} while ($refresh);
