Overlays WRF plot(s) on a WRF-ARW map background (deprecated).

Graphical map background, possibly created by a call to wrf_map.plots
A plot resource. Set to True if you want to advance the frame before creating the next frame. Set to False if you do not want to advance the frame. Use False only if you plan on adding additional text/lines/symbols to the frame before advancing it.
Overlay a number of graphical plots over a map background on the given workstation.
wrf_map_overlay is part of a library of functions and procedures in WRFUserARW.ncl written to help users plot ARW WRF model data.
