I forgot to mention "Emissivity". IR radiation varies from material to material.
As you should be able to see by now IR temperature measurements are quite complicated. They're based on the Black Body formula. If want to see how complex is go here.

(At considerable altitude, the boiling water is not accurate.)
These are approximate number for distilled water at sea level. The ice is ice water can be a lot colder than 32°F for one thing. These number are "transition" numbers where water changes from liquid to a solid or the other way around, and where water changes from liquid to a gas or the other way around. Do NOT confuse water vapor with steam.
