Hank Walter in Phoenix asks why the temperature in Salisbury is often 10 degrees lower than the surrounding areas: "In the mornings, the temperature there is usually as cold as it is in York, Pa." I've heard that before. Best guess: Salisbury, at the center of the Delmarva Peninsula, cools more at night because it's farther than nearby towns from the moderating influences of the bay and ocean.
