MORE DAYS OF SPRING
FEWER DAYS OF SPRING
New York City
Cities are plotted by the change in the average number of spring days in 1985–99 vs. 2000–14. Sapporo averaged 72 days of spring from 1985 to 1999 and 74 from 2000 to 2014
Source: NOAA daily weather records for each location with at least 350 days of temperature data each year from 1985 to 2014. TIME determined the total range of temperatures by looking at the top 3% and bottom 3% of daily highs in this 30-year window. A day was considered to be springlike if it fell between 35% and 70% of the range from the coldest to hottest regional temperatures.
