TEMPERATURE VARIATION RECORD. Temperatures varied from highs to lows each Sol as follows for MSL between Sol 15 (at Ls 158.8) and Sol 232 (at Ls: 292.6). Note: There is a report at http://www.spaceflight101.com/msl-rems-science-reports.html that indicates a maximum temperature seen of over 10 degrees Celsius, but nothing that warm was seen on reports issued by the REMS Team or Ashima Research up through March 29, 2013). Where there was a claim at the link just given that temperature extremes dropped due to MSL moving over a different type of terrain, this in indicated below for Sol 121 on with blue shading.
