Thank you for an excellent Australian weather app Smile

There are a few things I think I would like to tinker with if that is ok with you.

Changes
- Option to zoom in / out of the 128km, 256km, 512km, national radar images (So for my local radar IDR46 a 3 is appended for 128km (IDR463), 2 for 256km (IDR462), and 1 for 512k (IDR461)
- View Options Location as a drop down box
- Loading animation whilst waiting for data to load
- Add mini weather to Weather tab (So when the Weather tab is highlighted but not entered into then todays weather is displayed)
- Preload weather data for all suburbs in settings and buffer (to minimise waiting time for weather data to be loaded)

I'm a total XBMC noob. Figured making a few tweaks to an existing addon will give me a good introduction before I start writing my own addons. Hope you don't mind Smile

It's fine with me, and I certainly don't have the time, so go for it.

If you fork off:
https://github.com/bossanova808/weather.ozweather

...just submit a pull request when you're done & tested and we'll get it happening. Make sure you support all features in Confluence at a minimum, though - other skins are nice but it has to work properly with the default for me/xbmc team to consider it for the master repo.
