DAYTON — The temperature has been so cold recently that local bodies of water are starting to give off steam.
RELATED: How is wind chill calculated?
The Great Miami River and Mad River are frozen in multiple spots and near Deeds Point the Mad River is almost frozen from bank to bank.
With the frigidly low temperatures the water in the river is now warmer than the air around it and causing the appearance of steam coming from the water.
“Even though the water feels very cold it's still much warmer than the air around it. The air temperature is around zero or below and the river is significantly warmer, so it's just condensation. The river, just because it is much warmer, is condensing steam,” Kurt Rinehart, chief engineer of the Miami Conservancy District, said.
This can be compared to what happens when you have a pot of boiling water in your kitchen that gives off steam because it’s warmer than the atmosphere around it.

CENTERVILLE — A Centerville police officer with years of experience with the department was recognized Monday for his extensive work in the law enforcement community, to include active shooter training that a Las Vegas shooting witness credited with saving his life.
Officer John Davis has served as a community relations officer with Centerville police since 2012, but has been with the department for 25 years.
Davis has taught “Run, Hide, Fight” training to a variety of organizations throughout the region and the country to educate and prepare participants on how to respond to active threats, according to city officials.
Davis said he was recently contacted by an individual who participated in the training, when he was teaching in Long Beach, Calif. The individual told Davis the training came into use while he was in Las Vegas at the time of last year’s mass shooting.
“He credited the training with saving his and his wife’s life,” Davis said.
Davis has taught courses across Ohio and in Orlando, Las Vegas, Indianapolis and Long Beach.
Davis also has roles with the Ohio Crime Prevention Association and the Miami Valley Crime Prevention Association.
