The observed number of very cold nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature below 0°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods at Kingston, RI. The average number of very cold nights was about 5 days each year between 1960 and 1994. Beginning in the mid-1990s and extending into the 2000s, the observed number of such days was below average. Since 2000, the number of very cold nights occurs on average 2.5 days each year. The number of very cold nights 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.
