Extreme heat belt will affect over 100 million Americans in in next 30 years old, research finds

Temperatures are higher threshold of National Weather Service “extreme” weather service danger”category when heat index more than 125 degrees Fahrenheit is expected to affect about 8 million people in USA it year. But by 2053 13 times so much people — 107 million — will be experience which is extremely dangerous heataccording to climate studies research group First Street Foundation.

” results indicate that the incidence of extreme heat growing all over the country in absolute and relative terms“, the study says.

Temperature in some areas will increase more how in others, including the so-called “extreme heat beltstretching from Texas to way to the Great Lakes, non-commercial study found.

Over 100 million Americans in this is region will experience temperatures above 125 degrees (52 degrees Celsius) during the hottest periods of in year, more than 10 times expected number currently.

Using a peer-reviewed extreme heat model The First Street Foundation used property level data to find the hottest seven days of in year currently and compared it with the equivalent in 30 years. On average, the seven hottest days will increase to 18 by 2053, the researchers say. found.

But in southern half of country, number of the hottest days will rise to about 30 – meaning that there was once the hottest week. of in year It will be the hottest month by the 2050s, according to a study.

Miami-Dade County in Florida will see the biggest shift ever in extreme temperatures where the hottest seven days of in year in 2023 (heat index of 103 degrees) will occur on 34 days in 2053. Other locations in Florida and along the Gulf Coast, most likely experience more than 30 extra days of heat readings above 100 degrees by 2053, study found.

Number by country of county is expected to reach heat index of 125 degrees at least once a year will jump more than 20 times 50 in from 2023 to 1023 in 2053, according to the study.

Probability of local heat waves – defined as temperatures well above normal for three days in a row also growing across the country, but highest along the west coast, according to the study.

“Interestingly, the impact of successive local hot days is likely to occur in west coast states, while the states in The Midwest, Southeast, and East Coast are the most risk of exposure to extremely dangerous temperatures, which means that virtually the entire country is exposed to the growing dangers associated with with heat exposure,” the study says.

The study also defined projection of change for each of US states.
