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
e.g. product, plf, 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
