    I am having the same problem, my accuweather radar map is only about a half inch wide down the middle of my bold's screen when I load the map, and the rest on either side is just gray area.

    I double-checked my map size in the URL and everything is fine. Anyone have a fix?

    I am trying to customize this radar link for use on my storm 2.
    http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/Loop/NatLoop.gif

    I can pull the webpage up in the browser, but I can't get the radar map to come up in berry weather. It's a pretty simple radar, but I like it because it's a quick way to see the whole country and see what is headed my way vs just the zoomed in berryweather radar which is also good. Can anyone help? Sling?
    Try: Works Great in my 9780 (it has 8 frames, I set frame = 10 in the BB Weather settings, works fine):

    Hello
    The radblast links work brilliantly for US locations. However, when I try enter my UK location I only see a blue box and no map is displayed.

    Please can someone help here?

    TIA

    I'm posting this in case it might help anyone else.

    Regarding the www.accuweather.com/m/US/wigs.axd?city= etc. custom URLs which many people have been using for years, the last week in May 2012 I emailed accuweather.com Level-II support several times and what they said was:

    "The reason for the redirect is that the radar service you are using is no longer
    supported. All traffic to that page should now redirect to the new mobile site regardless
    of browser. There may be a few browsers which still allow it, but they will eventually
    redirect as well."

    In other words it's no longer available. What I've been using recently for my older web-enabled RAZR phone which can only display small images is:

    http://sirocco.accuweather.com/nx_mosaic_160x120_public/sir/inmsirus_.gif

    you can also substitute either 320x240, 400x300, 640x480 for the image size in the URL.

    You can also substitute *most* U.S. State abbreviations in the URL, note I say "most" because some coastal states will not be the "center" for the map, apparently. For example this works:

    http://sirocco.accuweather.com/nx_mosaic_320x240_public/sir/inmsirmi_.gif

    I also use the NWS "cell" (non smart phone) links (note they reallocated the "mobile" part of the URL for the new stuff and legacy stuff is "cell" as in cell.weather.gov, for example:

    http://cell.weather.gov/radarlp.php?radar=kapx

    Hope this helps somebody that still wants to use semi-custom radar links on a blackberry, or radar images on any other legacy web-enabled non "smart" phone like a Motorola RAZR.
