  2. ^ Temperatures over 52°C reported from western Nīmrūz province are not believed to be reliable. A temperature record of 51.0C at Zaranj is also suspicious.49.9C recorded at Farah in August 2009 is not confirmed by the official international station data. 49.9C at Bust in July 1983 is not confirmed by the original observatons, therefore these two readings must be considered strongly suspicious.

The temperatures recorded at Tirat Ẕevi are to be regarded as unreliable due to serious problems in the thermograph,like the spreading of the ink under the strain of extreme conditions. Tirats Tsvi data had also been abnormally higher than any other nearby station for many years, overestimating the air temperature of at least 5C, compared to nearby station Deghanya which recorded 49.0C on the same day. For these reasons, data for this station is not reliable and cannot be taken into account.

The record of -71.2C at Oimiakon in 1926 was an extrapolation rather than a reading, that's why it is not universally accepted.The February 1892 original record of Verkhoyansk of -69.8C was later corrected to -67.6C, for an instrumental reading error of 2.0C and an instrumental error of 0.2C. Somehow, wrongly, this value has been reported, even officially, as -67.8C, but this is plainly incorrect, since the same correction has not been done in all years when there were these instruments problems. According to the best studies, the correct value should be -67.6C,thus inferior to the record of Oymyakon. Unofficial reports at Oymyakon as low as -82C in 1916,both before and after the start of the official readings, are not confirmed or official.

  109. ^ A reading of 43C recorded on April 23rd,2007 at Tay Hieu (Nghe An Province), was taken in a small station and may be affected by overexposure. Apparently, according to the data recorded in the Vietnamese Meteorological Service for this station is " digital data 0.6C taller",so in this case the correct value would be between 42.4C and 43.6C. The instrument used seems not to be compatible with today's standards. Old Vietnamese records taken during French colonization were taken under not proper exposure conditions and they should be discharged.
