You are what the thermometer reads.  Still 86F in PHL at 1030 pm this evening.  I am doing the math if PHL hit 97F today and add that 3-4F boost as indicated by the 925mb/850mb rise, well it would be a fitting end to this nearly month long wretched stretch of hot and then hot & humid weather.

Record low max at PHL today is 79 degrees, lowest hourly thru 6:00 is 82 degrees so should be a new record for the date.

If it avoids a thunderstorm like we will in Tumbleweedville, we can start engraving that trophy. 82F is a warm start. We have been getting hotter than stat/mos guidance, ought to be interesting in a not so pleasant way this afternoon.

NAM MOS gives PHL 92F for a high. Please it will be there by/at Noon.

PHL could reach 100 degrees today & that wouldn't be a record high for the date. Starting on 8/7/2001 a four day furnace baked Philadelphia with highs of 99 / 100 / 101 / 98, the 8/8/2001-8/10/2001 high temps are daily records. 2001 is only time over the past 67 years (1955) that PHL has recorded 100 degrees during the month of AUG.

Locally 89 / 74 at 11:00am

Heat Index - 99

3F higher than yesterday at 11 am at PHL.  That would be 100F, although that 97F looked wonky yesterday.  I was 2F cooler than VAY, so if you are matching VAY, don't know about that.  Sure looks like 99F, 100F not out of the question.

The highest hourly at PHL yesterday was 95F.  So now I get this Gladstone plot (Where is the 97F?).  Yesterday looked more baked than average lately, but you are what your thermometer says you are.  GFS is currently directing aircraft to pass within 10 feet of the ASOS sensor.

We are advecting in neutral air.  Not sure how yesterday went. In a normal wetness summer 24C would be around 96F for a max temp.

I am on my way to bananaland, so I will try to sneak a peak on breaks.  No need to tell me no rain fell in tumbleweedville.

2nd day a row starting out at 76 in NW Chesco, about as warm as you ever see here in the burbs.

Started out at 73 in East Nantmeal - the record high min for today was 77 degrees back in 1918. The highest minimum low temperature in Chesco was the 80 degree low temp for the day on July 1, 1945!

Only place to be today is in a pool! Even the chilled mountain air of EN has been as high as 88.3. Down the shore in Sea Isle City - this is the 5th time this summer with a 90 degree reading!
