You should still see the time stamp changing even if there is no rainfall
activity in your area?

I have just tried Oklahoma City and it works for me. There must be no
activity at the moment only the time stamp is changing.

What theme are you using? One explanation is that the theme you are using
has not been updated to support the animated radar maps. If it has not been
updated MythWeather will fall back to showing a static radar map like
You should see a message on the console where you started mythfrontend or in
the mythfrontend log asking you to update your theme.

You could also try another location to see if that works.
