Hi Kyle,

The range of dewpoint depression is very different from the default temperature 
range. When you first create
 the color filled contour plan view display, you need to adjust the contour 
properties in the display control, change the
 max and min range. You also need to change the color table range to use the 
data value range.

You don't need to worry about the unit, you can change the display unit and the 
IDV display can auto adjust.
