"Last July was the third warmest in the Greater Antilles from 1951 to date, when thermometers registered average temperatures of up to 38.2 Celsius degrees mainly in the province of Santiago de Cuba, which exceeded 0. 7 the historical average for the seventh month of the year," Granma reported. Records of maximum and minimum monthly average temperature "were in the order of 33.1 and 23.3 Celsius degrees, exceeding the usual figures 0.5 and 0.7, respectively."
Institute experts warn that, beyond temperatures that mark the thermometers, the temperature perceived is much higher due to the high humidity on the island.
