This figure appears in chapter 33 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of very warm nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature above 75°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 19 long-term reporting stations. The second half of the 20th century was a cool period for North Carolina, with the frequency of very warm nights well below the long-term average. The most recent 5-year period (2010–2014) has seen the largest number of very warm nights in the historical record — almost double the long-term average. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average of 4.6 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
