Hi Jimmy,

I didn't see a response to this.

The PLCHHQ errors are occuring because you are probably using a colon
(":") in your text strings, and the colon is a special character in
NCL that is used as a function code (for doing superscripts,
subscripts, font changes, etc).

We recommend that people download a ".hluresfile" file and put it in
their home directory. This file changes that function code to a "~",
sets your font to "helvetica", and allows you to change the default
colormap to something else.


I think once you fix the function code problem, the plot won't be as

I think the WRF-NCL developers have a specific color map that they
recommend you use in .hluresfile, so they might want to chime in here.
