Intellicast animated radar image loop for the U.S.
http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/RadarLoop/usa_None_anim.gif (hxxp://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/RadarLoop/usa_None_anim.gif)

Main page
http://images.intellicast.com/
Their current radar image http://images.intellicast.com/National/Radar/Current.aspx (hxxp://images.intellicast.com/National/Radar/Current.aspx) has a click for local images feature.

As a shortcut for the animated loop--- for all of us on dialup, instead of spending eternity for the main page to load up with all it's interactive images--
I go for a specific location, for example:
http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/RadarLoop/rno_None_anim.gif (hxxp://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/RadarLoop/rno_None_anim.gif), the "rno" in the link referring to the location in this case, Reno.

For the PNW, instead of the "rno", choose "tiw" (Wash) or "rdm" (Ore) or "myl" (Idaho).
northern Rockies "lwt" or "riw"
Colorado "den"
upper plains "bis", "stc", and "dsm"
Texas takes three "bro", "row", and "sat"
Louisiana "lit" and "msy" (home of the cajun otter)

Each animated loop averages 400-500 k in size.

Satellite image #1 in a loop of 8: http://sat.wrh.noaa.gov/satellite/4km/WR/animation/IR4.GIF.1.jpg (hxxp://sat.wrh.noaa.gov/satellite/4km/WR/animation/IR4.GIF.1.jpg)
#8: http://sat.wrh.noaa.gov/satellite/4km/WR/animation/IR4.GIF.8.jpg (hxxp://sat.wrh.noaa.gov/satellite/4km/WR/animation/IR4.GIF.8.jpg)

noaa forecast for one state: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/prodsByState.php?state=mn&prodtype=zone (hxxp://www.nws.noaa.gov/view/prodsByState.php?state=mn&prodtype=zone)
or instead of "zone"..... prodtype= "discussion" for synopsis, or "hourly" for the latest weather report for the state.
