  1. Yep sure looks like a similar warming trajectory from the UHI PHL Airport vs all of those Chester County NWS COOP and MADIS sites just since 1980....which of course only includes our current warming cycle of climate change
  2. This was already addressed the east and west is not as critical as the elevation above sea level which we have already detailed in the above post with those splits. There are of course today...consistent with the older data more stations at the relatively lower elevations. Not at the higher elevations. We will of course be analyzing data that reviews the data individually at both the relative higher and lower elevation locales to account for any variables due to these elevations.
  3. LOL!! "quality sites" meaning those that disagree with your NWS Climate sites including both PHL and ILG Heat Island impacted stations and of course add in those after the fact chilling adjustments to the past and warming tweaks to the current data. Quite the different look from the above for Chester County if we don't make warming adjustments to the actual current data. Regarding the sites in more detail yes there was as a % more lower elevation sites in the past....which likely skewed those results too warm...even though they were in fact the warmest decades. The good news is we now have a good balance and mix that as long as we keep breaking it out by elevation will clearly show the non-adjusted factual real world warming or cooling depending on the current climate change cycle.
  4. Our gloomy weather continues with limited sunshine over the next couple days and a good shot at some showers by tomorrow night. Sun returns Sunday and should stick around through Wednesday. Chester County records for today: High 94 degrees at Phoenixville (2017) / Low 29 degrees at Devault 1W (1956) / Rain 1.71" KMQS Airport in Coatesville (2018)

  6. Nope not true at all. 27 NWS COOP stations included AWOS etc.
  7. But of course neither KMDT or KCXY actually recorded a 58.1 degree mean temperature - MDT was 56.8 and CXY 57.9
  8. Wow they actually warmed both KMDT and KCXY for the 17 straight years from 2001-2017 in the NOAA Climate set!!
  9. Looks like the trick was indeed to clearly amplify the warming....I will run CXY also great stuff!!
  10. You are indeed correct just like in Chester County the NCEI has in fact at least for every single year since 2000 adjusted the temperature for Harrisburg above what has been reported at MDT (see below) Do you know what if any other stations are included in the NCEI Harrisburg data?
  11. I have not looked at MDT but I will do so and let's see how much and if they adjust after the fact
  12. While not the sunniest of days, today and Friday should be dry and not too far from our normal high in the low 70's. We chill back down to below normal over the weekend with shower chances the highest on Saturday but dry again on Sunday. Chester County wide records for today: High 91 degrees at Phoenixville (1945) / Low 30 degrees at Coatesville 1SW (1956) / Rain 2.16" at Glenmoore (2012)
  13. They speak in general terms of site movements, time of observation adjustments and equipment issues. The detail appears to not be applied at a station level they simply apply it to the county wide averages.
