SILO climate database - maximum and minimum temperature

The maximum and minimum temperatures are the highest and lowest temperatures (respectively) which occurred throughout the 24 hour period up to 9am. The observed minimum daily temperature is assigned to the date the observation was made, as the diurnal cycle typically reaches its minimum at approximately 5am. The observed maximum daily temperature is assigned to the day prior to the date the observation was made, as the diurnal cycle typically reaches its maximum at approximately 3pm. If the data are not recorded daily (for example, the instrument malfunctioned), the first observation following the no-report period is flagged as an accumulation.
