I was trying to plot the Day 3 SPC Convective Outlook. I don't know if other people came up with this first. Go to Data ---> Retrieve Data. Scroll down to 'Convective Outlook Day 3 from SPC (USA). Highlight that. Then click on 'Edit Site'. In the window for 'Enter the URL for this site', you will see: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/day3otlk.html /products/outlook/archive/. Remove that and put this in: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/archive/20@Y/KWNSPTSDY3_20@Y@M071100.txt
Then click ok. Once you retrieve the data and go to Data--->Convective Outlook----->Day 3, it will plot.

For Day 1 in the 'Enter the URL for this site', I used: http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/archive/2008/KWNSPTSDY1_200806081200.txt
However, when I went to plot, nothing happened. Then I went to Data---->Troubleshoot Data and in the window labeled 'Click on a file to examine the imported contents', scroll down to Convective outlook, and double click on it. In the bottom screen you will see the Day 1 text version of the outlook. When I scrolled down, I noticed that for some unknown reason it gets cut off and the important part is left off. Why that occurs is something beyond me.
