MetPy 0.4.1 Released

MetPy version 0.4.1 has been released. This fixes a few minor issues in the 0.4 release made in advance of Unidata's annual Python Training Workshop. Highlights of features added in the 0.4 release:

  • New calculations: Saturation mixing ratio, Equivalent potential temperature, Coriolis parameter, and Level of free convection (LFC)
  • Provisional support for objective analysis/regridding (Barnes, Cressman, Nearest Neighbor, Natural Neighbor, and Radial Basis Function Interpolation)
  • Support for downloading upper air data from Wyoming and Iowa State archives

MetPy packages are available for Conda on the conda-forge channel, and for pip from the Python Package Index.

MetPy is an open source toolkit for using Python in meteorology. It includes meteorology-specific support for reading files, performing calculations, and making plots. For more information, see MetPy's online documentation. MetPy's source code is also now hosted under Unidata's GitHub organization.

Great news. I believe this tool has been much upgraded and will be of help for more accurate meteorological prognoses.
