Observed and Projected Temperature Change
Figure 24.1Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites - NC

Observed and projected changes (compared to the 1901–;1960 average) in near-surface air temperature for Mississippi. Observed data are for 1900–;2014. Projected changes for 2006–;2100 are from global climate models for two possible futures: one in which greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase (higher emissions) and another in which greenhouse gas emissions increase at a slower rate (lower emissions). Temperatures in Mississippi (orange line) were warmest in the 1920s and 1930s and coolest in the 1960s through the 1980s. Temperatures have remained near average since the 1990s. Shading indicates the range of annual temperatures from the set of models. Observed temperatures are generally within the envelope of model simulations of the historical period (gray shading), but on the very low end. If Mississippi were to continue to follow the low end of model projected temperatures, by the end of the 21st century temperatures would average about as warm as hottest historical year under a lower emissions scenario and about 4°F warmer than the hottest historical year under a high emissions scenario.
