Days with Minimum Temperature > 90°F

 The total number of days per year when the lowest temperature doesn’t drop below a given threshold is an indicator of how often very warm nights occur.  

When the lowest temperature of a 24-hour period doesn’t dip below 90°F, plants, animals, and people don’t have a chance to cool down. They can become stressed and susceptible to other negative health impacts. As the number of very warm nights increases, sensitive plants may not produce flowers or viable seeds.
