[R] plotting a grid with color on a map

Hi all,
I have posted similar questions regarding this topic, but I just can't seem
to get over the hump and find a straightforward way to do this.  I have
attached my file as a reference.
Basically, the attached file is a 5 degree by 5 degree grid of the the world
(2592 cells), most of them are NA's.  I just want to be able to plot this
grid over a world map and color code the cells.  For example, if a cell has
a temperature less than 20 degrees it will be blue, 21 to 50 green color,
51-70 orange, 71+ red colored cells.  For any NAs, they should be colored

I know how to create a map of the world using map() and add a grid to it
using map.grid(), but I can't color code the cells the way I need.  Is there
a way to do this in R?

Thanks again.
