NotesEdit

  1. ^ The record highs and lows are based on the Secretaria de Mineria link for the period 1951–1960 and 1971–1980 while records beyond 1961 come from the Servicio Meteorológico Nacional link since it only covers from 1961–present. As a result, the most extreme values from either source are used.
