[McIDAS #YOE-898036]: Re: [DATA:] [FAQ:] MSLP maps are incorrect (fwd)

Hi Paul,

Your follow-up email to John Haynes of CSU/CIRA included below seems to
indicate that you do not need a reply from me.  True?

Just so you know, I was going to suggest that you review which pressure
parameter you were using for your displays, and I was also going to
ask what time of the hour you were producing the plot.  The reason
for the question on the timing was to make sure that the plots in
question were not being produced before a sufficient portion of the
reports for Canada were available.

Please let me know if you are waiting for anything from me...
