Look at the findu link for "long term tracking". It goes back something more than a year. It shows on a U S map.
You specify the length of time you want to go back with a number parameter in the URL. I think it is "&start=nnnn". IIR the parameter is hours. I seem to remember a limit of 9999 or some string of nines, that was a bit more than a year's worth. If it is hours, then 9999 is 1.1414 years.
So, you can do it for a week, month, or whatever you want by calculating the parameter. I dug through Steve D's cgis to figure it out. It may be called breadcrum.
(I think .fi has something similar)
By digging through Steve's cgis I figured out how to grab the local Nat Wx Service radar image with me and some locals on it without any of the rest of the web page. This is without any scripting or programming other than specifying parameters in the URL and knowing how to click to grab only a browser image and nothing else. Makes dial up quickre for severe Wx radar images.
