Some simple code examples.

from noaa_radar import Radar

noaa = Radar()

image = noaa.get_composite_reflectivity('HTX')"composite_reflectivity.jpg")

image = noaa.get_base_reflectivity('HTX')"base_reflectivity.jpg")

image = noaa.get_storm_relative_motion('HTX')"storm_relative_motion.jpg")

image = noaa.get_base_velocity('HTX')"base_velocity.jpg")

image = noaa.get_one_hour_precipitation('HTX')"one_hour_precipitation.jpg")

image = noaa.get_storm_total_precipitation('HTX')"storm_total_precipitation.jpg")

For an map of radar sites see, the noaa map at On the map, Radar site names start with a K, just remove it and you have the name string of the site to request. For example, ‘KHTX’ becomes ‘HTX’.
