Observed Number of Warm Nights

Figure 50.3

This figure appears in chapter 50 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2017 report.

The observed number of warm nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature above 70°F) for 1950–2014, averaged over 5-year periods; these values are averages from 45 long-term reporting stations. Wyoming rarely experiences warm nights due to its semi-arid climate and high average elevation, with a typical station experiencing one such night every 6 to 7 years. Since 2000, the state has experienced above average frequency of such days. The dark horizontal line is the long-term average of 0.16 days per year. The number of warm nights for the contiguous United States (bottom panel) is also shown to provide a longer and larger context. Long-term stations back to 1900 were not available for Wyoming.
