The observed number of extremely hot days (annual number of days with maximum temperature at or above 100°F) for 1900–2018, averaged over 5-year periods (bars; last bar represents 4-year average). Filled circles connected by black line segments show annual values. The horizontal black line shows the long-term average for 1900–2018 is 10.7 days per year. These values are averages from eight long-term reporting stations. Since 1990, the number of extremely hot days has on average risen in New Mexico although not all locations have experienced increases. The largest number of days was recorded in the 2010–2014 5-year period, with the eight long-term stations averaging 17 days per year over 100°F. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
