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



Hi Dave,

No worries.

This is easy enough to create.  Before I create it for the active period
yesterday afternoon, it would be good to know if you would like the
flashes overlaid on top of radar images?

Actually, we are trying to move away from running our own email server
for staff email.  I have been busily changing subscriptions to various
lists to use my address@hidden address instead of address@hidden
The one area that we can not move away from use of old addresses yet is
for User Support exchanges.

re:
> Thanks again!

No worries.  As soon as I know if you would rather the lightning
display be superimposed on top of radar imagery (e.g., our 1 km
NEXRAD Level III Digital Hybrid Reflectivity national composite),
I'll create the GIF and send it along.  (I have to be at work to
access the lightning data, and I am at home at the moment, so the
generation needs to wait until I get into the office.)

Cheers,

Tom
