Reno is one of the fastest-heating cities in the nation. Over the past 52 years, Reno’s average spring temperatures have risen by 6.8 degrees Fahrenheit, and summers are heating up too. In 2018, Reno reported 20 days with temperatures of more than 100 degrees.
The city with the second-most dramatic increase in average spring temperatures is Las Vegas, having jumped 6.2 degrees over the same period.
