I am creating maps using pcolor with a colorbar using colors from white to yellow to light red for small to medium to large values, respectively. I am using caxis to request the limits of the colorbar, however when I have outliers (extreme large numbers) in my data I see that my map now has dark red, black or gray colors where those extreme values are instead of the light red color I defined for large values. How could I force the extreme values of my data to have the light red color that I defined for my colorbar and skip those unwanted colors in my map?

Thank you so much dpb. I found a solution to my problem by using contourf, which allow me to have extreme data values as part of the maps colors.
