This figure appears in chapter 37 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 14 long-term reporting stations. The dark horizontal line represents the long-term average. The number of extremely hot days has been mostly above the long-term average since the late 1980s, reaching a historic peak in 2000–2004. However, the number was below average during the most recent 5-year period. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
