Consequences of Global Warming of 1.5 °C and 2 °C for Regional Temperature and Precipitation Changes in the Contiguous United States

Fig 2

Timings for when global and CONUS 5-year mean annual mean temperatures for 32 CMIP5 models cross 1.5°C and 2°C thresholds for RCP4.5 and RCP8.5.

The threshold crossing times for the ensemble mean projections are indicated by red triangles and for the ensemble median projections by open triangles. The timings for the ensemble median projections are shown only if all 32 models cross the selected threshold before 2100.
