pdq, surely you are referring to the 'official' temperature readings? There are many places - including inside sun porches and parked cars- that arevery much in excess of the official temperature for the day, temperature that is carefully controlled as to air and environment.

Sun beating on asphalt in the middle of the afternoon reaches a much higher temperature than it does in the weatherman's vessel.
