Observed Number of Very Hot Days

The observed number of very hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature above 95°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 27 long-term reporting stations. The number of very hot days for the contiguous United States (bottom panel) is also shown to provide a longer and larger context. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. There were few long-term stations back to 1900 for Nevada. From the mid-1970s until the mid-1990s, the number of very hot days in Nevada was below average. Since the early 21st century, the number of very hot days has been well above the historical average. The highest number of such days occurred over 2005–2009. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
