  1. Is it possible the skyscrapers in Philadelphia aided the cumulus cloud development today? Looks like cloud formation began right over center city. http://mp1.met.psu.edu/~fxg1/PSUGOES_PA2/loop60v.html
  2. I see Northeast Philly's temp is at 97 degrees at 1pm. Looks warmer than most spots by several degrees. Where exactly is the thermometer at the airport there? Is it very close to the runway? I notice that Northeast airport generally is the hot spot in SE PA.
  3. Do you think I can apply Scott's turf builder to the lawn today? Just concerned about the rain being too heavy tonight.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. @susqushawn Have you seen examples where your higher elevation has seen more snow than surrounding lower elevations?
  7. Such cool satellite imagery of the storms popping in west central PA. http://mp1.met.psu.edu/~fxg1/GOES_PA/loop60.html
  8. 8.2 degrees near Montgomeryville, PA this morning. Elevation 472 feet.
  9. 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?
  10. 106 degrees (all time record high) in Philly 99 years ago today. Far cry from the 60s in the area this afternoon.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. High of only 72 degrees today out by Montgomeryville, PA at 472 feet. Almost felt like late September.
  14. Ended up with a low of 43.3 in Montgomery Township, PA.
  15. 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?
