Philadelphia makes the list of 'hot cities'!

I mean, this town is on fire!

Bookended by an almost-snowless winter and an extremely mild December, 2012 was the warmest year on record in Philadelphia.

 The official average temperature at Philadelphia International Airport, 58.9, was a full 0.7 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the former champs, 1931 and 1998, according to the National Weather Service.

On the weather service top 12 list of warm years in Philadelphia in the period of record dating to 1874, eight have occurred since 1990.

But on the other hand, an Attytood commenter told me once that the planet is actually getting cooler so I think everything's going to be OK.
