Observed Number of Very Warm Nights
Figure 33.4North Carolina State University
Kenneth E. Kunkel
The observed number of very warm nights (annual number of days with minimum temperature at or above 75°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 4.6 nights per year. These values are averages from 19 long-term reporting stations. The second half of the 20th century was a cool period for North Carolina, with the frequency of very warm nights well below the long-term average. The 2010–2014 5-year period saw the largest number of very warm nights in the historical record—almost double the long-term average. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
