The frequency of warm nights has risen dramatically in the last two decades, with the most recent 5-year period (2010–2014) experiencing an average of almost 4 more days annually compared to the preceding decade (2000–2009). The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 3.5 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
