The observed number of very hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature above 95°F) for 1900–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from five long-term reporting stations. The number of very hot days has been below the long-term average in the 2000s. Record high numbers occurred during the droughts of the 1930s. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average (1900–2014) of 4.6 days per year. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
