If you have a version of NCL later than V5.1.0. the recommended method is the "ZoomIn" attribute that is recognized by wrf_map:
There are some examples of using "ZoomIn" on the WRF-ARW page:

I would like to plot a subregion of my wrf output. I tried to set
   res@mpMinLatF = -50
   res@mpMaxLatF = 0
   res@mpMinLonF =-100
   res@mpMaxLonF =-70

But it didn't work. The followings are my setting. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks!


a = addfile("","r")
pblh = wrf_user_getvar(a,"PBLH",0)
res@cnFillOn = True
 pltres = True
  mpres = True
  mpres@mpGeophysicalLineColor = "Black"
  mpres@mpNationalLineColor = "Black"
  mpres@mpUSStateLineColor = "Black"
  mpres@mpGridLineColor &nbs p; = "Black"
    res@FieldTitle = "PBLH_WRF"
