This figure appears in chapter 46 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of very cold nights (minimum temperature below 0°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from nine long-term reporting stations. The number of very cold nights dropped below the long-term average between the 1920s and 1960s, followed by an above average number of such events until the early 1990s. The number of very cold nights has remained below average for the past two decades (1990–2014). The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 1.6 days per year.
