UNSOLVED SMHI RADAR
Hello. I live in sweden and in sweden we have this wheather provider called SMHI. There is already a module for displaying SMHI wheather forcast and current wheather on the magic mirror with the help of SMHI api, but SMHI also has a free service called SMHI RADAR that shows where the current rain clouds are located. Im very new too magic mirror and apis in general. so if anyone would like to help me build somthing that shows the rain clouds moving across sweden that would be awsome. The link too the SMHI RADAR api is here
as far as ive got is that it seems you can download pngs of the radar images. all you would have too do then is make all the images pop up on the magicmirror with a small delay from each photo so it would look like the clouds were moving.

@karsten13 Yea i know i will try too use that now but the pros with smhi radar is that it has more radar stations and is more accurate in sweden. thank you so much
I was displaying Radar images from my local radar provider BOM.gov.au just by using an iframe and loading the appropriate URL.
You might be able to try something simlar.
Unfortantely BOM has started rejecting automated requests and it has stopped working for me but your provider might be more open.
