I am looking to create a bar graph that outputs a certain range of values, for example the minimum to maximum temperature of a Body. The label on the x axis to the appropriate bar should be a char representing the name of the Body (So in this simple example the output would be just one bar graph). How can I do this?

This is one of the possible ways
x = categorical({'First label', 'Second label', 'Third label'});
ymin = [1 2 5]; % heights of bar
ymax = [4 9 8];
b = bar(x, [ymin; ymax-ymin].', 'stacked');
b(1).Visible = 'off';

Updated answer shows how you can achieve the result as you mentioned in comment.

I was not certain what result you wanted when I replied to your Comment to Plot range of values as bars. I gave a sort of general reply.
Try this slight variation on that code:
Tmax = randi([25 30], 1, 10); % Create Data
Tmin = randi([15 20], 1, 10); % Create Data
days = 1:10; % Create Data
plot([days; days], [Tmin; Tmax], 'LineWidth',5)
ylabel('Temperature Range (°C)')
ylim([10 40])
xlim([0 11])
xtl = compose('Day #%2d',days);
Ax = gca;
Ax.XTickLabel = [];
set(gca,'XTick',days, 'XTickLabel',xtl, 'XTickLabelRotation',15)
