SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK

Post by JGlaveskas »

Is there any way to change the color of the severe wx outlooks? I am only getting them in grey. Also has anyone had any difficulties with the SSUM and SDIF functions? I am trying them with the Totals Total index but cannot get them to function. They work fine computing the 1000-500mb thickness . i've shortened the script just to sum the temp + dewpt at 850 and that doesn't work. It contours the 850 dew point.
TTOTALS |CONT cint=5 COLOR=150,150,0 STOR=6 SSUM=2,3 STOR =3 DWPT(C) H850 STOR=2 TEMP(c) H850 STOR=1 TEMP(c) H500

Thanks
John

TT Index and other

John

You can try the following script for TT index:

TT INDEX
CONT LINE=2 COLOR=150,100,0 GRTN=50 CINT=4 SSUM=1,4 STOR=1 SDIF=2,3 STOR=2 TEMP H850 STOR=3 TEMP H500 STOR=4 SDIF=5,6 STOR=5 DWPT H850 STOR=6 TEMP H500

You can use also these other index

K INDEX
CONT COLOR=0,200,0 GRTN=30 CINT=4 SSUM=1,4 STOR=1 SDIF=2,3 STOR=2 TEMP H850 STOR=3 TEMP H500 STOR=4 SDIF=5,6 STOR=5 DWPT H850 STOR=6 SDIF=7,8 STOR=7 TEMP H700 STOR=8 DWPT H700

VERTICAL TOTAL
DATA CONT LINE=2 COLOR=0,200,0 GRTN=26 CINT=2 SDIF=1,2 STOR=1 TEMP H850 STOR=2 TEMP H500

CROSS TOTAL INDEX
DATA CONT LINE=2 COLOR=0,200,0 GRTN=20 CINT=2 SDIF=1,2 STOR=1 DWPT H850 STOR=2 TEMP H500

KO INDEX
CONT COLOR=200,0,0 LSTN=2 LINE=2 CINT=2 SDIF=1,4 STOR=1 SDVC=2,2 STOR=2 SSUM=3,5 STOR=3 THTE H500 STOR=5 THTE H700 STOR=4 SDVC=6,2 STOR=6 SSUM=7,8 STOR=7 THTE H850 STOR=8 THTE H000

Please check if they are ok. I haven't had time to do it yet.
Do you have some idea how I can script the Lift Index?

For U.S. Convective Outlooks, you can change the line color, line weight, line style and label font.

File > Preferences > Styles (tab) > select the style you want to alter

The convective outlook preferences should be at the bottom of each style list.
