MetPy is a collection of tools in Python for reading, visualizing, and performing calculations with weather data. If you’re new to MetPy, check out our Getting Started guide. Development is supported by the National Science Foundation through grants AGS-1344155, OAC-1740315, AGS-1901712.

MetPy follows semantic versioning in its version number. With our current 0.x version, that implies that MetPy’s APIs (application programming interfaces) are still evolving (we won’t break things just for fun, but many things are still changing as we work through design issues). Also, for a version 0.x.y, we change x when we release new features, and y when we make a release with only bug fixes.

For additional MetPy examples not included in this repository, please see the Unidata Python Gallery.

We support Python >= 3.6. Support for Python 2.7 was dropped with the release of 0.12.
