MetPy Mondays #21 - LCL, LFC, EL

When looking at sounding data, we often want to calculate various thermodynamically important levels. This week John shows you how to calculate LCL, LFC, and EL along with some of the common mistakes we see. You'll also find tips on exploring how to use functions in Jupyter notebooks.

MetPy Mondays #20 - Constants

We've all typed constants into our scripts before. It can be error prone and we may not always use the exact same value for the constant. This week we'll show you how to use MetPy's constants library to take the hassle out of your code!

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.
