It was so hot i nearly fainted. Too much walking in the midday sun. Over 40c.
On the other hand, it didnt feel too bad. Ive been to Southern US states, and a humid 29-31c felt hotter there, although obviously wasnt doing me as much damage as I didnt nearly faint there.
Thus i shall vote for Mendoza, as it hasnt tried to kill me. And I like the name.
Question though...why does Argentina only have 10 year (1981-1990) averages where every other country has 30 year averages.
It has 30 year averages too. Currently it's the period 1961-1990. But these seem to be less available on the Internet, I don't know why. The 1981-1990 averages seem to be meant for tourism issues. Though I don't why there aren't 1991-2000 and 2001-2010 data available.
For example, here yo have the monthly averages for Buenos Aires in both periods (in °C):
BTW, back to the topic, I choose Granada, but just for a small margin. The plus is that spring doesn't start so early as in Mendoza, and also I prefer the Mediterranean rain pattern: rainy in winter, dry in summer. Mendoza is the other way around.
Should be Mendoza for me, but I'd like sun data of course.
