You can get the RADAR imagery from my WMS service.
Or you can download the composites directly from.
Or if you are like Gerry and myself and have the raw NIDS NWS Level III
data, you can convert these datafiles into composite GIS rasters. My
crude HOWTO on this procedure can be found here.
The composites aren't the pretty ones you can get from the commercial
vendors, but they work :)
