Below is a dew point depression script I use.
It displays the difference between dew point and temperature in deg C

The SFCPLOTMODEL line refers to my plot model settings and sets plot model requirements that I use but your could be different therefore that line can be removed or changed as necessary to suit your requirements.

All thresholds and colours can be changes as required by changing the RGB colour settings
Beaware, when you copy the script from the website it inserts a space at the end of the line sometimes.
This space should be removed by you when it is copied into notepad and saved as a .DSF file in DA. In other words DA does not like spaces at the end of the lines.

Look through this forum and you will find may scripts available and I am sure you will find nearly everything you want.

Regards

In the last line remove the HILO (marked with <>) and the high and low points will be removed.

ANALYZE, <HILO> CONT CINT=1 COLOR=100:100:100 DASH
