Abstract: 

Daily emperature has been measured at the El Verde Field Station since 1975 (see methods). Monthly averages have been calculated. Lowest average values for minimum temperature were recorded from January to April with nearly 18 Centigrades during this period of time (see chart). During these months, the lowest average minimum temperature was recorded in 1976 ranging from 20 to 22 Centigrades (see chart). Highest minimum montly average records are shown from June to October with peak in the vecinity of 20 Centigrades.
