animated gif / manual loop controls

more info on animated gif/manual controls

The National Weather Service produces both a single animated gif file, and separate images for each individual period of time.

You can use the animated GIF that the NWS produces, but you won't be able to pause or choose the speed of the loop.

Or you can switch to manual looping controls so that you can pause, go forwards/backwards, and soon, you'll even be able to set the loop speed.
