3.9.2 Doing More with Upper Air (RAOB) Displays
  1. Load in the Davenport Radar bundle from the Workshop->Bundles favorites. Use the CCS039 group in the RAOB chooser to select data from the Comet Case Study data that we used in previous exercises. Select soundings from Davenport, Iowa (74455) for 1998-06-29 12:00:00Z and 1998-06-30 00:00:00Z. Compare the soundings to the meteorological situation shown by the radar.
  2. Create a plan view display of 500 mb parameters for 00Z today. Overlay the contours of 500 mb geopotential heights from the initial time step of the 00Z NAM grid.
  3. Load in the latest 12Z RUC model data. Create a Grid Skew-T display. Load in several 12Z soundings scattered over the model domain and create Skew-T displays of the data. Compare the model soundings with the observed soundings.
