This paper is based on measurement of ambient (air) temperature distribution in Lamurde, Mubi South local government area, Nigeria. HTC-2 digital LCD thermometer and hygrometer electronic meter manufactured by Shenzhen Oway Technology Co. Limited Guangdong, China was used to collect data in the study area and compared with the National Aeronautics and Space Administrative (NASA) values. The results of the research revealed the maximum air temperature of 29.30oC against 33.70oC (NASA). Instat 3 and Microsoft Excel statistical package were used to analyze the data obtained. The results of T-test revealed p value of 0.0009 which is considered as extremely significant at 95% confidence interval and F-test showed that f (0.08) ≤ F (0.42) which revealed that there is no significant difference between the two data because it has 75% correlation coefficient. The study concluded that the data obtained could be used for research purpose and recommended that other sophisticated equipment should be used to validate the data.
