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

Fig 4

A comparison between 2°C threshold crossing times for global, CONUS and regional 5-year mean annual mean temperatures shown in terms of the percentage of climate models out of 64 total projections (32 RCP4.5 + 32 RCP8.5) that cross the 2°C threshold at a given time until 2099.

The numbers in square brackets indicate when the multi-model ensemble mean crosses the 2°C threshold for a given region for two RCPs [RCP4.5, RCP8.5].
