The observed number of very warm nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature above 75°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 13 long-term reporting stations. Louisiana has experienced a substantial increase in the frequency of very warm nights over the past two decades. During the most recent 5-year period (2010–2014), the number of such nights has been double the long-term average. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average of 15 days per year.
