Average temperature change for every state over the last 100 years

Posted on


The global climate is changing. And according to numerous scientific experts, nothing will be spared from its effects—no acre of land, no human being, and no animal will be completely insulated from the changes that will occur over the next century.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest report, issued in April 2022, warned that the world must curb the trend in rising greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 if there is any hope of meeting the Paris Agreement’s goal of capping global temperature rise at 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels.

Climate change does not affect every area equally, which is as accurate globally as it is between the U.S. states. Thirty-three states have had their hottest overall years since 2010, and while the amount of warming—just a few degrees—may seem inconsequential, it’s important to note just a few degrees of cooling caused past ice ages. Should humans continue to follow this current trajectory, the warming of Earth will have devastating worldwide effects.

Stacker compiled data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information to detail the temperature changes over the past 120 years across every state except Alaska and Hawaii, where data was unavailable. Each temperature is compared to the 1901-2000 average.

Winter in this story refers to December of the preceding year through February of the current year (e.g., in 1919, winter is December 1918 to February 1919), while summer refers to June through August of each year. All temperatures are listed in Fahrenheit.
