I modified a little python script to fetch a radar image that gets displayed as the background when on the Weather menu. I've got it set to update every 5 minutes in crontab but was wondering if anyone has a method internal to XBMC to run a python script every X minutes.

I don't know of any mechanism built into XBMC. It might be possible to use an autoexec.py script and spawn a separate thread to do it (I don't know if the version of Python in XBMC supports this) but this would be a bit hacky.
