MetPy Mondays #19 - Skew-T Parcel Path

Now that we've got all of the data plotted in our Skew-T diagram, we might want to know the expected path for a parcel. This week we'll calculate parcel paths and plot them on our Skew-T to round out a publication ready diagram.

MetPy Mondays #18 - Skew-T Fiducial Lines

Continuing our Skew-T series, this week we'll learn how to add fiducial lines to our Skew-T plot. Theses lines, such as adiabatic paths and mixing ratios, give us a visual reference to aid interpreting the plot and they can be added with just a few lines of code using MetPy!

MetPy Mondays #17 - Resampling Wind Barbs

Last week we were able to plot a basic Skew-T, but the wind barbs suffered from over-crowding in some parts of the plot. This week we'll look at a few strategies to deal with this problem including downsampling and nearest-neighbor resampling.

MetPy Mondays #16 - Making a Basic Skew-T

The Skew-T is a fundamental plot for understanding the state of the atmosphere. This week we'll learn how to build a basic Skew-t using MetPy and continue to build on this plot for the next several weeks.

MetPy Mondays #15 - Upper air data with Siphon

On this week's MetPy Monday, we're talking about the Siphon package. Why? As several users have noticed, the getupperair_data function is deprecated as of MetPy 0.6 and will be removed in MetPy 0.8. That functionality has been moved to our remote data access library (siphon) with an improved API. Learn how to use siphon in this week's video!
