[python #CAU-929310]: MetPy: sbCAPE


Apologies on the delayed response. 

CAPE is implemented as a direct integral over the environmental temperature 
profile and the calculated parcel profile. Any error margin in the calculated 
CAPE value is really the error margins from the original data, scaled by 
metpy.constants.Rd since that's what converts the integrated temperature 
difference to energy.

Hope this helps,
