do you mean like a weather radar chart?
if so, even though there may be code out there (not really aware of any) you would still need to purchase the rights to use the weather that is obtained from one of the weather servers.
I believe the coding would be fairly simple though.
The first step would be to contact one of the weather servers like accuweather.com and speak with them about cost and code.
Once paid for, I'm sure it's just a block of code.
Also, I imagine there is a free version that includes their advertising on it.

cf 7 charting doesnt support radar in the cfchart tag.

webcharts3d is what CF uses and you can get that to do it by using the Java code.

<cfxml variable="request.chartModel">
<xml type="default">
      <cfoutput>
            <cfloop from="0" to="5" index="i" step="1">
                  <col>Col #i#</col>
            </cfloop>
            <cfloop from="0" to="3" index="i" step="1">
            <row <cfloop from="0" to="5" index="j" step="1">col#j#="#randRange(0,20)#" </cfloop>>Sample #i#</row>
            </cfloop>
      </cfoutput>
</xml>
</cfxml>
<cfscript>
s=createObject("java","com.gp.api.jsp.MxServerProperties").newInstance();
svr=createObject("java","com.gp.api.jsp.MxServerComponent").init(s);
chart=svr.newImageSpec();
chart.width = 320;
chart.height= 240;
chart.type = "swf";
chart.style = "<radarChart fill='false' />";
chart.model = request.chartModel;
svr.saveBytesTo(chart,
"c:\\Development\\mplus.mcgrath.com.au\\dev\\temp\\chart\\"& chartname &".swf");
</cfscript>
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,2,0" ID="Images_100141_SWF" name="Images_100141_SWF" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240">
