The mean monthly maximum air temperature of Bermuda (based
on U. S. Meteorological Squadron data from 1941-1967) varies between 66.6
degrees F (February) and 85.0 degrees F (August). Mean daily minimum temperatures
vary in a comparable manner, that is, 58.9 degrees F in February and 76.9
degrees F in August. In contrast, a true Caribbean type tropical island
is usually associated with a much narrower temperature range. For example,
the average annual temperature range in Barbados is 3.9 degrees F.
