gridded data input

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm currently working on using Gempak to overlay radar data with
contours of surface pressure, temperature, etc. from the Oklahoma
mesonet.  I'm doing a time-space transformation on the mesonet data, so
I would need to be able to plot data with a resolution of more than the
currently allowed hundredths of a degree of latitude or longitude.

However, one way I was looking at to get around this was to use a
different program to objectively analyze the surface data and put it in
grid form (this grid would then have a resolution of .1 x .1 degrees,
and so mapping it in GEMPAK wouldn't be a problem.)  I've already
computed grids of the data with a program I wrote that uses the MQD
analysis scheme.  Is it possible to input these grids into Gempak and
have it contour them?  I was guessing the program GDCFIL would be useful
here, but it seemed like that would run them through the Barnes analysis
before contouring.
Thank you for your help!
