Plotting temperature, or dew point values

Post by tmagan »

We know that the command line:
'product,plf,0'
will plot surface station plots, provided you have downloaded the correct information.

However if you wanted to plot surface numerical temperature values (in degrees Fahrenheit), I would think that the following command would do it:
'product,tmf,0'
However that didn't work.

If you wanted to plot surface numerical dew point temperature values (in degrees Fahrenheit), I would think that the following command would do it:
'product,dwf,0'
However that didn't work

My question is, how do you plot individual temperature and dew point temperature values?

add Plot

That will plot the 'station plot' on the map. I am interested in just plotting temperature values (not isotherms), or dew point temperature values.

Go to: File->Preferences->Station Plots(Tab)
Under Surface Plot Model blank all the spin boxes except one with Temp.
Save Plot Model button.
Save your plot model. I made a folder called surfaceplotmodel to store model settings.
Load the surface plot model: e.g. SFCPLOTMODEL,C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Local Settings\Application Data\DigitalAtmosphere\SurfacePlotModel\yourplotmodel.sps
hope that helps
