Hey guys:

I know there have been scripts done for temperatures and dew points, and such, but was wondering if anyone has a good color contour for doing the heat index. Much of the nation is having a heat wave, and I thought this would be useful now for those who need them.

Any ideas welcome!

Randy

I have a humidex script which I`m using for Canada. A heat index shouldn`t be any harder to do.

I`ll post something later tonight, if someone doesn`t beat me to it!

Bob, or anyone:

Does anyone have a suitable heat index script they care to share? I've been trying to create one, but no luck.

Thanks,
Randy

Sorry Randy, I forgot!

If you`re just after contoured isotherms, then that is really quite simple. The following should work. Obviously change the isotherm colours, intervals, dots/dash line or whatever you want.

I did have a colour fill version but I seem to have misplaced it. If I get time later I`ll write another one up.

Ps. Here you go. Just knocked together, haven`t really tested it so it might not be entirely accurate.
