azimuthal averaged values of wrf outputs

I am studying tropical cyclone's structure using WRF. I am stuck on how to plot height-radius azimuthal averaged values of wrf outputs (Wind speed and diabatic heating).

kindly assist me with a script to plot these variables
Please see the attached script and png file. Hope it is helpful for you.

greetings Sir

This script is very useful thank you very much.

however, am struggling to extract wind data and put it into pressure levels at this part below. I don't know how to define the variable from the wrfout file so that it will have four dimensions as a bogus data (xx) is defined below. kindly help

xx = random_uniform(-8,100, (/ntim,nlev,Nlat,Nlon/)) ; data: rectilinear grid
xx!0 = "time"
xx!1 = "plev"
xx!2 = "lat"
xx!3 = "lon"
xx&time = time
xx&plev = plev
xx&lat = lat
xx&lon = lon
xx@long_name = "Bogus Data"
xx@units = "Whatever"
