How do I update this to a working URL? I tried by editing the URL in the Python script, but still just got a black square.

Works fine here.
I do wish it could start un-animated though, as python uses way to much cpu power to animate the map.
Also would be nice to have a drop box to easily change radar sites for different images.

Nope, no dependencies. If you don't have internet connectivity before the screenlet polls weather.com then there might be a delay. Just hit refresh. Does the black background of the screenlet get displayed, is it only the images that are not showing up? Have you tried running it in a terminal? What sort of warnings or errors are you getting? Talk to me.

I had the same issue, until I installed the python-imaging package for my distro. Hope that works for you.

I have used this cool screenlet on several distros and it has always worked well for me AFTER the following steps:

Right click and select properties.

Click the options tab.

Click the Radar tab.

Enter your zip code and click apply.

Close the window.

Hope this helps. It has always worked for me.
