As climate change increases the frequency and intensity of extreme heat, cities and their urban heat island (UHI) effects are growing, as are the urban populations encountering them. Thesemutually reinforcing trends present a growing risk for urban populations. However, we have limited understanding of urban climates during extreme temperature episodes, when additional heat from theUHImay bemost consequential.We observed a historically hot summer and historically cold winter using an array of… CONTINUE READING
