xy plots

The purpose of this page is to show some very basic scripts for creating XY plots of WRF variables using gsn_csm_xy. For more meaningful plots of WRF data, see the WRF-ARW Online Tutorial.

Many additional xy plot examples are available.

WRF_xy_1.ncl: Plot a time series from a variable at a user specified grid location. Use the wrf_times_c function to convert the auxiliary variable "Times" to units of hours since the initial time. Three simple variations are illustrated.
WRF_xy_2.ncl:Read time series from multiple grid points and plot. Create a graphic legend that identifies the points used. Illustrate color and reshaping of figure.
