Tim Told me that he is going to start to work on the program again starting Early July. And he is going to be working on the GRIB fuctions which will allow us to get ALL of the Severe Weather parameters! RUC has then all and does NAM and GFS! Just need to software to work well with it!

Dryline, on behalf of all the illiterate Script writers, I want to thank you for the "Package". I spent half a day trying to write one script and I think the computer actually laughed at me.

Here Here!!

I just installed these scripts last night and did a test run on them.

VERY NICE!!

Has anyone approached Tim about setting up a repository on the site where scripts could be uploaded and downloaded?

Having to cut-and-paste is pretty 'low-tech'.

You start the scheduler with 5 minutes interval. Is the speed of the pc the only reason or has it something to do with the availability of the data? If it's the speed, why not make 1 big script?

From a software development standpoint, keeping things granular is considered a 'best practise'.

Using one large script has no advantages, and numerous drawbacks. Hence the growing popularity of languages like Java and C (in all its flavors) and the decline of more procedural, monolithic languages like COBOL, FORTRAN, etc.

It's much easier to maintain product stability and consistant quality when scripts are kept as granular as possible and are encapsulated at that level of granularity.

Ok. Enough techno-babble for now. Back to the weather.

Glad you like them.

After taking a break from weather stuff during the (convectively boring) winter, I just broke them out again to have a poke at on Monday.. I expect I'll do some tweaking and release an upgrade in the next few weeks.

A list of wants (taking into account the limitations of the scripting language) might be useful.. post them here, and I'll see what I can do.

Cheers,

Half the fun, for me at least, is figuring out how these scripts all work. I got to hand it to the gents coming up with all of these...In figuring out how they put them all together it keeps me on top of my game..and sometimes scratching my head til I get one of those Ah-Ha moments! Hopefully, someday, I'll be able to come up with a scriptto post that no-ones posted yet.

#PRODUCT,plf,0,Data Plots
ANALYZE,CONT CINT=2 LINE=2 SLPR
ANALYZE,VECT COLOR=0:0:255 WIND

STAMP
EXPORT,C:\WX\Scripts\Output\Synoptic\synop_@FFZ@MMZ@DDZ@HHZ@NNZ.JPG

Look if there are spaces at the end of the line.
