This work provides an overview of recent additions to MetPy’s suite of capabilities, from MetPy’s core developers as well as community contributors, including: GINI file support, station model plotting, gridding of point observations, and additional calculation functions. The plans for next steps in MetPy’s development are also discussed, and input from the community on these next steps is actively solicited as part of the presentation.
The longer term plans for MetPy are also discussed. As MetPy’s user base grows, it is important to examine what features are needed for MetPy to be ready for a 1.0 release, and the stable API guarantees 1.0 brings. Part of this discussion also includes needed changes to existing features.
