Wrfout wind profiler scripting

Good afternoon,

I am attempting to produce wind profiler-type output from wrf output files, colorizing the wind barbs by speed. I have successfully done something like this using a combination of the wrf_meteo_5.ncl (link: http://www.mmm.ucar.edu/wrf/OnLineTutorial/Graphics/NCL/Examples/SPECIAL/wrf_meteo_5.ncl) and the barb_4.ncl scripts (link: http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Applications/Scripts/barb_4.ncl), but the y-axis is in sigma levels (see attached meteo4a.ps). Instead of sigma levels, I would like to change the y-axis to height, in meters, using the height of each sigma level for each hour. What do I need to change in my NCL script (attached) to make this happen?
