This figure appears in chapter 21 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of very cold nights (minimum temperature below 0°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 15 long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. The number of very cold nights has been consistently below average since the early-1990s. The lowest number of cold nights occurred during 2010–2014. The number of very cold nights for the contiguous United States (bottom panel) is also shown to provide a longer and larger context. Long-term stations back to 1900 were not available for Massachusetts. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
