Arguments

pressure

pressure [hPa]

altitude

altitude [m] (can be above sea level or above ground level as function always consider first level as surface, i.e h = 0 m) - altitude [meters]

temp

temperature [degree Celsius]

dpt

dew point temperature [degree Celsius]

wd

wind direction [azimuth in degrees]

ws

wind speed [knots]

title

title to be added in the layout's header

parcel

parcel tracing on Skew-T for "MU", "ML" or "SB" parcel

max_speed

range of the hodograph to be drawn, 25 m/s used as default

hazards

logical, whether to add extra information about possibility of convective hazards given convective initiation (default = FALSE)

...

extra graphic arguments

Value

Skew-T, hodograph and table with convective indices drawn on a pre-defined single layout
