Plot Description:

This plot presents a simple average of a given sounding variable of your choice. If the selected month period crosses a calendar year, the year shown is for the January included in the period.

The 'Select Station' option provides some 'virtual' stations that are spliced together archives of close by stations. For some locations, the place that the sounding is made has moved over the years..

Some derived parameters are a work-in-progress. The IEM is presently computing a host of sounding parameters and with millions of soundings, this computation will take a number of days to complete.

Based on a sampling of recent timings for this application, plot generation time has averaged 6 seconds. Hold on for the plot is generating now!
