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!

MetPy Mondays #14 - Adding a logo and timestamp

This week, we'll talk about some handy functions in MetPy that let you decorate your plots with the MetPy or Unidata logos. We'll also add time of creation timestamps to help you keep track of what's what in that pile of PNG files in your manuscript folder!

MetPy Mondays #13 - Temperature Units

One of the most common support questions we get regarding MetPy is why temperature calculations fail. As it turns out, temperature units are a bit strange as they have an offset relative to an absolute value and a scaling factor. Learn how to properly handle temperature in your calculations with this week's MetPy Monday!
