HI there,
I am trying to plot surface winds in my wrf output file as a vendor plot. I would like to have it overlaid on a map of southwestern Ontario. I'm trying to get just the vector plot to work first. I keep getting an error that the wks variable in my ncl script has 4 dimensions and only 2 were expected. I don't know what is wrong and I have gotten other scripts to work.

Can anyone help? I have attached my ncl script.
