Published: Monday, June 18, 2018 @ 11:40 AM

A stretch of warm days is needed but how warm and for how long?

In the Miami Valley a heat wave is classified as three consecutive days or more at or above 90 degrees. May 2018 Dayton saw two 90 degree days in a row and this weekend we added two more. Monday a Heat Advisory is in effect for the entire Miami Valley as temperatures are expected to soar into the low 90s. The heat index will likely reach 100.

The most recent heat wave was July 23-25, 2016. The last heat wave Dayton experienced in June was June 10-14, 2015. That stretch produced five days at 91 degrees!
