This figure appears in chapter 31 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2019 report.

The observed number of warm nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature at or above 70°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 5.9 nights per year. These values are averages from eight long-term reporting stations. The frequency of warm nights has risen dramatically in the last two decades, with the 2010–2014 5-year period and the 2015–2018 4-year period experiencing about double the long-term average.
