This example shows how to overlay precipitation contours on
a terrain map, using transparent contours for some of
the precipitation contour levels.
This example also shows how to use two different colormaps that are
too large to merge into one colormap. NOTE:
In 6.1.0 you will no longer
have to merge multiple colormaps in order to use them in one image.
wrf_contour and wrf_map_overlays are used to create the
plots. Using these functions allows you to take advantage of the
metadata on the WRF file for special titles (see the enlarged image).
In particular, this example shows how to create two WRF contour fill
plots, one with a horizontal labelbar, and one with a vertical

Policy Development, UNC-Chapel Hill, for providing the inspiration for
this example and helping fine-tune it.
