Figure 33.4

North Carolina State University
Kenneth E. Kunkel

This figure appears in chapter 33 of the NOAA-led State Summaries 2019 report.

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.
