It's  no longer an active station, but Fremont 5 NW in Oregon actually has a wider range:

Impressive, but that is not it. Boca is below 40ºN.

 

Another hint: It's in the Klamath Mountains.


2018 in Portland had 27.30" rainfall, which is the 8th driest year on record and 8.73" below normal

Interesting.

The largest range I know of is 50.5 degrees at Thistle Utah (35.9 to 86.4 degrees), but that station is no longer operating. Thistle was wiped out in 1983 when a mudslide dammed the Spanish Fork River creating a lake 200 feet deep and three miles long. It completely destroyed the entire town:

Of note, WRCC gives a slightly lower diurnal range than the weather almanac I have, but I'm not sure why. It's still near 50 degrees.

Thistle does have a shorter period of record than Fremont though. The record at Thistle is only five years, so it may or may not count

I can't think of anywhere in Oregon or California that could beat Fremont, so I don't know.

So, what's the answer?   We're waiting to hear.   :)

It is interesting that the difference in night temperatures between August and January is only 16.7 degrees; while the difference in highs between those months is much greater.
