During trying making a script for precipitation some strange things. I made 3 scripts for showing the data in a grid for testing my scripts.
Precipitation: ANALYZE, DATA MMIN
Temp: ANALYZE, DATA TEMP
Pressure tendency: ANALYZE, DATA PTEN

Running the scripts in the following sequence gives:
Precipitation: values 0.
Temp: the real temperatures
Precipitation: values 0.
Pressure tendency: values spaces???? I think there is no tendency in the downloaded data.
Precipitation: values 15.5??? Now there is a complete different value in the grid, caused by a previous script.
I don’t know if the value is really changed or just wrong presented. My guess is the last one.

A question about precipitation. The commands MMIN and PC12 are not in the manual. Can anyone explain to me:
- is this a value that is downloaded
- what does it show
- in what way is it downloaded? This because the MNU-file gives more possibilities (PC02 etc) then the manual page 130.

Hope someone has the answer.

Greetings

Fred

The only way to plot Precip is to import model data and i dont think the program handels model data that well yet. Unless someone found out something i dont know. They are normally in the format of GRIB files!

This raises 2 questions:
- why are there commands in the analysis menu
- what do I see when I run them?
To see it easier I made a small script. Running it does not always show anything.

erase
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=255:055:055 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC24
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=255:148:148 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC18
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=255:240:000 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC15
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=000:255:179 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC12
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=000:179:255 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC09
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=022:000:255 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC06
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=250:000:255 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC03
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=168:000:168 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC02
ANALYZE,CONT COLOR=076:000:107 CINT=0.05 MMIN PC01

PC06 works on a regular basis.

Others work irregularly based on reporting stations.
