Yes, you can do these by editing the layout model. In the Dashboard window, 
select the Displays tab, and select the data source you are running, and under 
Layout tab, you will see an arrow like sign by "Lay Model:", click it will 
bring a select menu, and click on Edit, the layout editor window will popup,
now you can do the editing, double click the symbol, another properties dialog 
windon for the WindBard symbol will popup, In the Display tab window, you can 
change the color to black, in Color by tab, you can delete the parm of "Map 
Value of", finally, when you done, you click apply, and save a local copy of 
this layout model. Here is a more detail menu:
