    Growing (Freeze Free) Season in Chester County PA

    I would think elevation alone at 650' would account for 2-3 degrees less than near sea level at philly airport. Probably another couple degrees for your secluded location. So I think it's fair to say its a combination of your elevation and location for less 90 degree days.

    Does anyone have a good topographic map of the area they can share with me? I'm always interested in knowing what the elevations are in the surrounding counties of Philadelphia and where the low and high points are.

    @susqushawn Have you seen examples where your higher elevation has seen more snow than surrounding lower elevations?

    63 degrees close to Montgomeryville, PA (472 ft) at 11:40pm, but I noticed other areas close by already in mid to upper 50s. Wings Field (282 ft) already down to 55 degrees with calm winds. One thing I just noticed here when I walked outside was that there was still a breeze, I guess mixing the air and keeping it warmer. Anyone notice that higher elevations stay warmer than the lower sheltered areas where winds go calm?

    106 degrees (all time record high) in Philly 99 years ago today. Far cry from the 60s in the area this afternoon.

    Wings Airport in Blue Bell had a low of 52 with many hours of consecutive calm winds. Places like Quakertown and Doylestown with lows of 57, only had an hour or 2 of calm winds and thus higher temps. Sheltered spots last night really plummeted fast with temps.

    Temps already in the upper 50s in NW Bucks, Montco and Chester counties where winds have gone calm. You can see wind speeds are still up farther east and thus the higher temps.

    Already down to 49.5 degrees in Montgomery Township, PA at 10pm. Located close to Montgomeryville at 472 feet. Anyone else in the 40s yet?
  13. Any chance a blizzard watch would go up later today for Philadelphia area?

    Might be helpful and interesting this winter season when folks post observations to include their elevation. Simply plug in your location on this web page: http://www.whatismyelevation.com/##
