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 11 days per year. These values are averages from 12 long-term reporting stations. With the exception of the 2010–2014 period, the number of extremely hot days has been above the long-term average since the late 1980s, reaching a peak in 2000–2004. Source: CICS-NC and NOAA NCEI.
