looking at the image/histogram again those min and max are outliers I guess.
The main body of information starts at ~280 K (6.85 C) and stops at ~307 K
I am not sure how to explain the min < 270 K (those values lie mostly within
water bodies), but the max > 310 K areas are burned surfaces (a few days old
burn scars) which will explain the 45 C (at surface) in a September day in
So, those values seem rational after all.
