Maximum Diurnal Range for Ireland.

Met Eireann list Mt Dillon yesterday with a max temp of 19.8 and a min temp of -2.3, giving a diurnal range of 22.1.
Does anyone know what the record is for Ireland?

A bit off topic but one of the places I have been to was Bend Oregon in the high desert just east of the Cascade mountains the very definition of "High and Dry' in late August and I experienced some exceptional (for me) diurnal ranges. One of the days I was there it went from a very pleasant 25C to -3C that night.

The shock of walking out of a bar I had dinner and a few pints in at around 1 a.m was incredible to experience. I'm sure during my short week there I didn't get to experience anything near exceptional or maybe I did just get lucky

I don't know what the record is, but above 20C is notable though not unusual. I remember a July day (quote a few years ago), min of 5C, max of 27C

I don't know of an overall record but here's a few I have quickly noted from the past decade. It's an incomplete list. None of them beat yesterday's diurnal range at Mount Dillon.

EDIT: Kilkenny had a range of 23.8C on 2 August 1975 with a max of 27.8C and min of 4.0C.

Good work sryanbreun.

Midlands are definitely the place for these.
Coastal stations dont have low enough mins.
