The observed number of warm nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature above 70°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 27 long-term reporting stations. The number of warm nights 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. The number of warm nights been above average in the 2000s. The highest number of such nights occurred within the period 2000–2004.
