Hi, I am plotting radar data with HRRR to initialize the winds in a supercell thunderstorm.
How does one determine the level of y in pydda.vis.plot_xz_xsection_barbs to correctly slice the storm?
I did some guessing with trial and error and got y=150 for a x-z cross-section through this storm shown below.
What are the units of w_vel_contours? It seems if it is 1-2 m/s that they should be alot higher in the updraft zones, especially in the echo-free zone of the BWER where hail is suspended aloft. This storm produced baseball to grapefruit sized hail which would suggest w ~ 30-50 m/s.
