We quantified increases in monthly mean temperatures for 246 globally-representative cities in the Sustainable Healthy Urban Environments (SHUE) database using 18 global climate models. Under a high greenhouse gas emissions scenario, temperature increases in all cities exceeded 2 °C in the hottest month of the year by 2100 (relative to 2017), with some cities experiencing increases of greater than 7 °C. Temperature increases were largest in cities of mid to high latitude, in humid temperate and dry climate regions, and in cities with large seasonal variation in temperature. The large increases in the mean temperatures of the hottest month will present substantial challenges to climate change adaptation and health protection in urban areas. View this paper
