This figure appears in chapter 31 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of extremely hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature above 100°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from eight long-term reporting stations. Since 1990, the number of extremely hot days has on average risen in New Mexico although not all locations have experienced increases. The largest number of days was recorded in the most recent 5-year period (2010–2014), with the eight long-term stations averaging 17 days per year over 100°F. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 10.4 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
