Air temperature extremes and temperature records in various places are favorite topics of the mass media. The study of spatial distribution of temperature anomalies is an important part of regional climatology and physical geography. It is also a relevant base for synoptic meteorologists, who can make better predictions of the temperature regime in various regions during various meteorological situations. This paper offers a modus operandi for an evaluation of climate stations. The crucial element for the evaluation is the representative character of a climate station for a specific region. To find out the temperature differences in climate stations, it is necessary to compare them without any influence of their geographical position. This means analyzing the data without the vertical temperature gradients and the latitude and longitude temperature variations.
