[gradsusr] Using linefill on 2-D plot?

Here's an idea:
-Define your three fields above (ensemble max, min, and mean) across the
entire domain. Don't worry about thresholding at 32 F right now.
The first term above should plot a solid color everywhere the ensemble
minimum is above 32 while the second term should plot a solid color
everywhere the ensemble maximum is below 32. The multiplication should
cause all areas outside that to be set to missing, so the result should be
a band of color between the maximum and minimum extents of the 32 contour.

It's possible I have the mask expressions reversed, so if the above doesn't
give you what you're looking for, try swapping expressions.

Good luck. Hope this helps.
