Joined the 90 club with a high of 91.2 today.  Yuck.   say hello to David!

Got a fresh sea breeze so I'm sitting comfortably in the mid-70s. As Dikembe would say "Not today!"

Well, PHL 84 or 85 already, going to come close and if it makes it today, it is going to be a long, hot summer.  (Well it is anyway).

High today 78.2 here in East Nantmeal today after yesterday's 83.4 - 90's likely not coming out this way anytime soon. Easterly flow kept Sea Isle City in the low to mid 60's much of the day with a high temp of 66.2

87 for a high so far. It's the warmest day in Gap since... August 27!

I actually forgot how nice the end of summer/start of fall was. We didn't have any really hot days

With the 1st 90+ day today at PHL and of course no 90's at KPTW/ KMQS or East Nantmeal....will for the 7th straight year the combined 90+ days at 3 spots in the western burbs of KMQS & KPTW Airports + East Nantmeal Twp. be less than the runaway heat island problem that continues at PHL airport?? If I was a betting man (I'm not) I would say yes!! Below is the number of KPHL 90+ days vs. those 3 combined since 2014

2014 - PHL 19 days - combined burbs 10 days

2015 - PHL 37 days - combined burbs 13 days

2016 - PHL 46 days - combined burbs 35 days

2017 - PHL 26 days - combined burbs 11 days

2018 - PHL 30 days - combined burbs 26 days

2019 - PHL 31 days - combined burbs 16 days

2020 - PHL 36 days - combined burbs 33 days

You haven't provided a shred of evidence for a "runaway heat island" at phl. A couple of comments:

1) Heat island is mainly a nightime phenomena. PHL is much warmer than my site at night, but the difference is much smaller in mid-afternoon. 90F days are not a good stat to evaluate heat island effects.

2) You have a cherry picked your sites. Your house never hits 90. KPTW has run cold the past 5 years after running warm before that. One of the worst asos sites in the region. 90F days dropped significantly at kqms with the switch to ASOS in 2008.

3) PHL tracks 90F days at other regional sites. Below is comparison with VAY

4) Annual  average temperature trends are almost the same at phl and coatesville going back 40 years. (2W+kqms)

5) The airport has been built up for decades and I don't see a lot of building around the airport, certainly no more than Chesco.

6) Climate deniers love to complain about heat island effects. The complaints are completely unfounded, because heat island effects are easily accounted for by comparing to other regional stations. 

7) To beef up your case you would need to compare phl to a  wider range of regional stations and to broaden the comparison beyond 90F days.
