Observed Number of Very Hot Days
Figure 6.3Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites - NC
Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed number of very hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature above 95°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 14 long-term reporting stations. The number of very hot days is highly variable. Colorado experienced its highest number of very hot days in the 1930s, with the period of 2000-2004 experiencing similar levels; however, this varies across the state. In southeast Colorado the number of very hot days was substantially higher in the early 1930s than in the 2000s. The number of very hot days has been above average since 2000. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average of 16.5 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
