Version 0.6.1 (2017/11/04)

API Change

  • Small API change to change storm_relative_helicity to take heights, as well as an argument for depth. This fixes a bug in the original design of the function where the default bottom was 0, which is below the first level of most soundings.

Highlights

  • Fix bugs in corner cases of get_layer, precipitable_water, el, and bulk_shear
  • Fix use of units with plot_colormapped on Hodograph
  • Fix lack of projection of wind barbs in StationPlot when using CartoPy
  • Enable interpolation by default when calling shade_cape and friends for SkewT
  • Fixed up definitions of CAPE and CIN to be net integrals above and below the LFC, respectively
  • Add MetPy logo to examples
