This year’s weather continues to churn out record-setting days.
While Monday was the first day of the year to top 90 degrees, the high of 91 didn’t surpass the 1894 record June 12 high of 97 degrees.
These are the three most recent daily weather records set at Dayton International Airport, according to the National Weather Service:
Record rain: Wednesday’s 2.68 inches of rain shattered the June 14 record of 1.29 inches set in 1996, according to a preliminary data. Some areas in Warren County reported up to 3 inches. Flood advisories were issued for Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble and Warren counties throughout the morning.
Warm minimum: On May 18, the low temperature dipped to 69 degrees, setting a record for the highest low temperature on that date. The previous record of 66 degrees came in 1969.
April shower: Another daily rainfall record was set on April 28, when 1.51 inches fell, breaking a 1958 record of 1.26 inches.
