how to plot high-frequency time-height cross-section for a single point?

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have a time-series WRF output for a single location of interest for radar reflectivity. The time resolution is 1 min and vertical resolution is 64 model-levels. There are two files attached: one containing the simulated reflectevity data (blue_.d03.RA) and the other one containing the simulated heights of the WRF model-levels at each simulated time-step (blue_.d03.PH). The question is how to plot simulated time-height cross-section for radar reflectivity based on those two files, so that the changes in the model-levels will be considered rather than using fixed heights? Is it possible to perform with NCL? Please note, that the WRF time-series output files are in text format.

Kind regards,
