Key Idea Annual and seasonal maximum and minimum temperatures have increased in Pohnpei since 1952. These temperature increases are consistent with the global pattern of warming.

Projections indicate that the annual average air temperature and sea surface temperature will increase in the future in the FSM. Increases in average temperature will result in the rise in the number of hot days and warm nights, and a decline in cooler weather.
