How hot will your city be in the year 2100?

Does it feel like summers are warmer than they were just 10 years ago? Well, they are, and science organization Climate Central has compiled their research to predict the average summer temperature of all major U.S. cities for the year 2100. To put things in perspective, the data is displayed in a map that compares each city's future temperature to another city that currently experiences that kind of heat.

For example:

By 2100, New York, NY will be having summers like Lehigh Acres, FL.


Los Angeles, CA will be having summers like Fountainbleau, FL.


Chicago, IL will be having summers like Mesquite, TX.


Houston, TX will be having summers like Mission, TX.


Philadelphia, PA will be having summers like Harlingen, TX.



In 2100, Raleigh, NC will be having summers like Pharr, TX.


San Francisco, CA will be having summers like Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.


Fresno, CA will be having summers like Chandler, AZ.


These unnerving data predictions come at a time when there is much speculation over a phenomenon that has left the the Midwest and Northeast United States experiencing unreasonably cold temperatures in July--as low as the 40s and 50s. Global warming experts claim this is caused by a 'polar vortex,' whereas skeptics argue that it is an invented concept and disproves global warming.

To find how hot your city will be in 2100, take a look at Climate Central's very cool, interactive map here.





Climate Central credits themselves as, "An independent organization of leading scientists and journalists researching and reporting the facts about our changing climate and its impact on the American public."
