Can rising temperature jump or is it always constant?

Example: Jump: 10 degrees straight to 50 degrees

           Constant: 10,11,12,13,14.....50 super fast

    No rising or falling temperature cannot jump. It is an energy change and must progress gradually through all of the temperatures from lowest to highest or highest to lowest.

    It may happen extremely rapidly as in an explosion but that too must be incremental.

    If you are raising the temperature of a substance it normally goes the other way.  ie it increases at a steady rate until a change of state. Then the temperature stops rising for a while, then once the state is completely changed the temperature starts to rise again.

    No. I once experienced 65°F drop from 93°F to 28°F in under an hour in central Oklahoma. Ive also seen the temperature drop over 25 degrees in about 40 minutes in greater New Orleans more than once .

    Sure! Explosions jump really fast.  But they still go through every degree, just can go rapidly so it seems instant to us humans
