The observed number of very warm nights (minimum temperature above 75°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 12 long-term reporting stations. The number of very warm nights has been above average since the early 1980s. The highest number of very warm nights occurred in the most recent 5-year period of 2010–2014, with an average of 8 nights per year, more than double the long-term average. The dark horizontal line is the long-term (1900–2014) average of 3.8 days per year at a typical station. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
