What town in Delaware has the warmest weather? When I go downstate, it seems to me that Rehoboth tends to be cooler/colder than Lewes (most noticeable during Spring and Autumn), I assume because Rehoboth is on the Atlantic coast and Lewes is on the Bay. Are towns farther inland - say Georgtown or over in western Sussex and Kent counties - warmer than those farther east? And where do people feel is the dividing line between the colder, more northerly part of the state and the warmer, more southerly part? Seems like Dover is often quite a bit warmer than Wilmington, for example. Or is it just a steady continuum? One thing I always notice is that the crepe myrtles bloom much earlier in Rehoboth than in northern New Castle County (pretty much true for all the flowering bedding plants too).

It's always warmer inland but just depends on which way the wind is blowing too, wind comes from the west to east it's a lot warmer in Reho. Comes from east to west off the ocean, definately colder.

Go down to the beach when the wind is coming off the water, you'll freeze your arse off!

My house is the warmest place around in Delaware, 70 to 73 degrees inside because we heat with a kerosene heater and my heat pumps never come on, couldn't live without it!

TODAY, I'd say mid-Kent County is the warmest. I was in all 3 counties today, from New Castle County northern Delaware, through Kent, down to Sussex County in Rehoboth Beach, and on to Delmar. I was glad to get back to mid-state! The winds upstate, along the Bay and down to Salisbury, Md were horrendous. Wild winds in Kent this evening, but not as bad as other areas.

Wow! 16 degrees this morning here in Middletown. There is a new weather station at Redding Middle School that is linked to the Wunderground weather site.
