    Dear Petros,

    Please see the function "wmlabs" for drawing weather symbols using

    Other weather map routines include:

        wmbarb - draws wind barbs
        wmdrft - draws weather fronts
        wmgetp - get control parameter values for wmxxx procedures
        wmsetp - sets control parameter values for wmxxxx procedures
        wmstnm - plots station model data

    You can get to these via:

    These symbols will be of the same quality you saw in the weather1 and
    weather2 font tables. I'm not sure what you mean about them being low
    quality. Could you elaborate on that?
