Re: do me a favor:how to speed up when plotting figures using ncl with a large wrf data(more than 120G)

you can also skip plotting grid points to reduce the plotted data size and check the output if you like it. I assume that your grid is about 1000x1000 or more.
For instant, gsm_csm_contour_map(wks, precp(::2,::2), res), here you skip 2 points in each direct and get 4x speed up.
if you need more advanced technique you can regrid the data to lower resolution conserving the properties of the precipitation using area_conserve_remap_Wrap

Could you please provide the grid size and the output figure size just to check that the problem is no in I/O

Good luck
