MetPy Mondays #284 - Enums with Flags in Python

In this episode, we dive deeper into the Python enum and explore their applications in meteorological analysis. Enums provide a convenient way to define and work with a fixed set of symbolic names, making code more readable.

In this tutorial, we showcase how Python enums of the Flag type can be leveraged to represent various meteorological scenarios. From weather conditions and wind directions to atmospheric phenomena and precipitation types, enums enable us to create meaningful combinations using bitwise operators like OR (|) and AND (&).
