[McIDAS #FEA-590731]: lightning display in McIDAS-X



Hi Dave,

Which lightning data?  Unidata university sites can get both the NLDN
and USPLN (NAPLN, GLN) data feed to them via the LDM/IDD point-to-point
by UAlbany and WSI (aka The Weather Company which is now owned by IBM),
respectively.

I have attached a FRMSAVE capture of USPLN lightning (negative flashes
in yellow and positive flashes in cyan) over North America.  The plot
represents all flashes between 0 and 22:38 UTC today, 20170523.

If you would rather have a display of flashes over radar imagery, let
me know and I will generate one (probably over the southeast U.S. as
that seems to be the place for lightning today).

Let me know if the display is what you had in mind, or if you are
interested in something more interesting.

re:
> Thanks in advance,

No worries.

Cheers,

Tom
