# [ferret_users] Y-axis plot problem

Title: Y-axis plot problem
Hi,

I am having problems to plot a map in my area of interest. I have a variable (SST) that covers the area:

Longitude: I=x=(-180: 180), and I want to plot (fill) an area from 120E to 60W (the Pacific), but when I type:
Set region/x=120E:60W/y=15N:30S OR
Set region/x=120:240/y=15N:30S

It only plots the region from 120E to 180E. I have tried to set the region, go basemap (that fills the whole area of interest) and then try fill/over the variable but again it only fills from 120E to 180E, and the rest is a blank space.

Similarly, if I try:

Set region/x=-240:-60/y=15N:30S
Then it only plots the region from 180W to 60W.

And If I try:
Set region/x=120:-60/y=15N:30S , it then plots everything except the area of interest.

Any ideas of how to make a continuous map??

This is the grid for the variable:
