This figure appears in chapter 39 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature above 90°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods, at Kingston, RI. The number of hot days has been above average since the mid-1990s. The highest number of such days occurred in the most recent 5-year period (2010–2014), with an average of 11 hot days occurring each year. The number of hot days for the contiguous United States (bottom panel) is also shown to provide a longer and larger context. The dark horizontal lines represent the long-term average. Long-term stations back to 1900 were not available for Rhode Island. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
