It works now. one minor problem ... I still got 2 plots, second one is what I want. How to make the first one not created.

This is because you are using "RasterFill" for the second plot, which doesn't allow for transparency. When you use RasterFill, all the white areas in plot2 are actually white and not transparent, so they cover up everything in plot1.

Try using CellFill instead of RasterFill:

  res2@cnFillMode = "CellFill"

As I stated in my previous email, simply replace the second gsn_csm_contour_map_ce call with gsn_csm_contour. I downloaded your data and script, and this change seemed to work.
