Is GEMPAK and/or McIDAS capable of drawing the NWS polygons of updates watch/warning areas? I know GEMPAK has a decoder, but I never could get it to draw the polygon defined by that lat/lon points in the update using the standard GEMPAK tools.

I requested this feature on McIDAS last summer...nothing on it yet. As for GEMPAK, I don't know.
