Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed number of extremely hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature above 100°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 19 long-term reporting stations. The number of extremely hot days has not changed much over the last 60 years, until the most recent decade, which saw a slight increase. Record high numbers occurred during the droughts of the 1930s and early 1950s. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 2.3 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
