[python #WVL-148071]: conversion lat lon to states in MetPy?


I think you may be able to use Rasterio's `mask` module to do what you want:


It seems like you can mask using a list of polygons, which includes polygons 
from Shapely. You would need to open a shapefile with US states using Shapely.

This is how I would approach the problem anyway--I'm not sure if there are some 
challenges to this approach.

Hope this helps,
