[python #PHR-160601]: MetPy Help


Getting my hands on the data made this much easier to track down. The problem 
is an issue with numpy broadcasting--how it matches up arrays of different 
dimensions to do calculations. The solution, in addition to making sure you've 
included np.array() when creating levs, u, v, is to change the call to 
`mc.potential_vorticity_baroclinic` to:

    pv = mc.potential_vorticity_baroclinic(pot_temp, levs[:, None, None], u, v, 
dx=dx[None], dy=dy[None], latitude=lats)

What the additional indexing in that line does is add dummy dimensions in the 
correct spot to make all of the arrays 3-dimensional, so that everything lines 
up properly. For more information on broadcasting in NumPy, checkout these
