see table in Remarks for descriptions and default units
map mnemonic any map mnemonic defined in MAP context table
OLAY navigation from image; no map drawn (def)
SAT navigation from image; no map drawn
default do not draw map; use navigation of frame
fcst_time forecast time; if prefixed by + or - indicates a relative time from the present, otherwise value is absolute time of forecast
fcst_day forecast day (default = nearest day)



COL= Graphics color level (default = 3)
DAT= ADDE point data set name; specify as group/descriptor or alias (default = RTPTSRC/FOUS14)
DEC= YES use plot decluttering (default)
NO do not use plot decluttering
LSI= Display height of parameter (default = assigned by FOUSDISP)
RDAy= Output mode [PLOT, CON] (default = PLOT)

Model run time (default = computed)

UNIt= Display unit of parameter (def=see remarks below)



FOUSDISP builds and runs a PTDISP command to display FOUS 14 data from FOUS-schema point files.

You can use PTDISP's SELECT keyword to limit the plot to a specified list or range of values, but you cannot specify a different parameter, time, day or unit than those defined by FOUSDISP's parameters or keywords.

The table below lists the valid parameters, their default units, and a description of the parameter. Default units enclosed in parenthesis cannot be changed.

TMAX F maximum temperature
TMIN F minimum temperature
T F temperature
TD F dew point temperature
CC (code) cloud cover
WINDB (barb) wind barb (of DIR, SPD), where flag=25 mps (~50 knots), long barb = 5 mps (~10 knots), short barb = 2.5 mps (~5 knots)
WINDV (barb) wind vector (of DIR,SPD)
STREAML ( ) streamlines
DIR (degrees) wind direction
SPD KTS wind speed
PP06 (%) 6-hour precipitation probabilities >10%
QP06 (code) 6-hour precipitation totals
TH06 (%) 6-hour thunderstorm probabilities >10%
SV06 (%) 6-hour severe weather probabilities >10%
SN06 (code) 6-hour snowfall amount
PP12 (%) 12-hour precipitation probabilities
QP12 (code) 12-hour precipitation totals
TH12 (%) 12-hour thunderstorm probabilities
SV12 (%) 12-hour severe weather probabilities >10%
SN12 (code) 12-hour snowfall amount
PTYP (code) precipitation type
PZR (%) freezing precipitation probabilities
PSNO (%) snowfall probabilities
CIG (code) ceiling height
VIS (code) visibility
OBVS (code) obstructions to visibility
ID (text) 3-4 character ICAO station identifier
ZS M station elevation
PLOT (plot) station model plot:
 T      PP06
    WIN  ID
 TD      CC
