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

The observed number of warm nights (minimum temperature above 70°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 15 long-term reporting stations. The number of warm nights in Massachusetts has steadily increased since the mid-1990s with the highest number (since 1950) occurring between 2010 and 2014. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. The number of warm 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.
