Figure 44.3

This figure appears in chapter 44 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of very warm nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature above 75°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 12 long-term reporting stations. Although Utah rarely experiences high nighttime temperatures due to its semi-arid climate and high average elevation, the frequency of very warm nights has risen dramatically in the last two decades. During the most recent five-year period (2010–2014), the number of such nights has been more than double the long-term average. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 1.5 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
