Using 1981 temperature data for Ohio, the maximum and minimum temperatures for each day were analyzed to reveal the spatial relationships of extreme temperature distributions. The range of temperature reflected normal variations in solar insolation as well as the invasion of warm and cold air masses. The spatial distribution of extreme temperature points out the control of latitude and elevation on temperature. The occurrence of maximum and minimum temperature was concentrated in specific areas, suggesting hot and cold regions.
