Hi Matt,

Unfortunately there isn't a resource for this, but if you're willing to modify your copy of PyNGL, you can manually change the color pretty easily. In your site-packages directory for your Python distribution, you should see a PyNGL directory. Under that, there is Ngl.py. Around line 6054, in the skewt_bkg function, you'll see this:

if (localOpts.sktDrawColAreaFill):

    color1 = "PaleGreen2"            # "LightGreen"

    color2 = "Background"            # "Azure"

Change "PaleGreen2" for color1 to a color of your liking.

Hope this helps,

Dear PyNGL users:

I’m using the Ngl resources for skewT plotting. I was wondering if anyone has experimented with changing the default green sktColoredBands to another color. This option turn the bands off/on, but is there a resource or a trick for changing the default green banded background color?
Thank you,
