Image: NDFD daily gradient temperatures.

NDFD Temperature raster is downloaded daily by wget in Bash script and processed with gdal_warp, gdal_translate and saved. The WMS/WMTS layer is served by Apache/MapServer as defined by the ndfdtemp layer in the file and further defined by the element and ndfdband parameters.
