Using Python to try and pull forecast dew point data for a single location, with the goal being to come up with code that can pull the forecasted dew points and write it into a csv file. My question is to see if there's a way to print only the data within the array without showing the coordinates and other items.

Computer is a Windows running Python 3.6 via Anaconda. I've been able to focus in on just a few forecast data points I'm looking for (shown as [12:15] in the code) but no matter what it produces the coordinates and other data that I don't exactly need. I tried messing around with xarray.DataArray.drop a bit but I couldn't figure out exactly what I would need to drop.

import csv

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

import pandas as pd

import xarray as xr

import datetime as dt

from datetime import datetime, timedelta

dayFile = datetime.now() - timedelta(days=1)

dayFile  = dayFile.strftime("%Y%m%d")

url='https://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov:9090/dods/gfs_0p50/gfs%s/gfs_0p50_00z' %(dayFile)

ds = xr.open_dataset(url)

lati = 41.4; loni = 100.8

dsloc = ds.sel(lon=loni, lat=lati, method='nearest')

data_to_write_day_0 = dsloc['dpt2m'][12:15]


Edit: Expected output would be producing the forecast numbers only (I.e. 283.729, 284.827, 283.282). I guess in other words the desire is to break up the array so that only the forecasted values are printed out.

Here, for accessing the data we will use the values attribute.

 Values returns the data as a numpy.ndarray:

for x in data_to_write_day_0.values: print(x)
