The remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy brought heavy rains and record daily rainfall of nearly 3 inches on Friday in Dayton, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said. The record is 2.78 inches, which beats the previous record of 1.04 inches set in 1896. So far this month, 6.19 inches of rain has fallen over Dayton.

Overnight, it dries out and clouds break, Vrydaghs said. Much drier air builds in, which will reduce humidity towards morning. Overnight lows will be around 60 degrees.
