Observed Summer Temperature
Figure 36.2Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites - NC
Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed average summer temperatures for 1895–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from NCEI’s version 2 climate division dataset. Summer temperatures during the most recent 5-year period (2010–2014) have almost reached the same level as the record extreme heat of the 1930s Dust Bowl era. Due to extreme drought and poor land management practices, the summers of the 1930s remain the warmest on record. The dark horizontal line on each graph is the long-term average of 79.9°F.
