Highlights from last month:
It's been a slow news month here at the Unidata Program Center as we've been busy welcoming our summer interns to Boulder and getting ready for our first in-person governing committee meetings since the fall of 2019. Keep an eye out for introductions the three interns and our new Community Services Manager in the coming weeks.
This week's tip covers functionality for Watch Warning and Advisory plotting contained in a Jupyter notebook available in the python-awips Data Plotting Examples collection.
Version 5.0.7 of the netCDF Operators (NCO) has been released. NCO is an Open Source package that consists of a dozen standalone, command-line programs that take netCDF files as input, then operate (e.g., derive new data, average, print, hyperslab, manipulate metadata) and output the results to screen or files in text, binary, or netCDF formats.
This week's tip looks at creating an objective analysis plot in CAVE by loading both model data and current observations. The display/time options are a bit tricky to set up initially, but once you've created the plot, you can save it as a display to easily reload it.
On the Developer's Blog
Unidata Program Center developers write regularly on technical topics on the Unidata Developer's Blog. In May, the MetPy Mondays series explores parsing winds and temperatures aloft forecasts from the Aviation Weather Center and working with AIRMET and SIGMET files to plot polygons.
