Temperatures given are in the shade (basically the air temperature). Measuring the temperature in direct sunlight or the temperature of the ground, road, metal surface, in cars etc give a much higher reading. So plonking your thermometer in the sun could well give temperatures that high but they wouldn't count as the actual recorded temperature
