This figure appears in chapter 34 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of very hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature above 95°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 16 long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal line represents the long-term average. The 1930s were North Dakota’s hottest period over the past century. From 1930 to 1939, the number of extremely hot days was more than double the long-term average. Since 1990, however, the number of very hot days has been below the long-term average.
