Histogram of daily maximum wet-bulb temperature in 16 cities over Eastern China. Histogram of the JJAS season of TWmax (°C) for each GHG scenario’s ensemble: historical (black), RCP4.5 (blue), and RCP8.5 (red). The histogram bin interval is 1.0 °C and the values on the y-axis indicate the number of exceedances. Values indicated within each plot represent the 50th and 95th percentile event thresholds. TWmax is the maximum daily value from 6-h running average for each day (bias correction described in the Methods section). The figure was created using the NCAR Command Language (https://www.ncl.ucar.edu), but the background image was obtained from NASA Visible Earth
