During a heat wave, there can be a 20-degree shift between different Philly neighborhoods

Jose F. Moreno / Staff Photographer An inflatable pool on 3400 block of Goodman Street in North Philadelphia.

    Weather warning: These Philadelphia neighborhoods get the hottest in a heat wave
    Some Philadelphia neighborhoods can be 4-8 degrees warmer than the average city temperature. So, on a 95 degree day, as is forecast for Sunday, it could be 100 in some neighborhoods without trees and other features that provide a cooling effect. City officials say that heat island effect has been made worse with climate change.
