Sunday rainfall breaks 74-year-old record in Dayton

DAYTON — Sunday was one for the record books! Rain and storms came through during the morning and continued into the night. So much rain fell that it broke a record at the Dayton International Airport.

2.64 inches of rain fell July 17, which smashed the old record of 1.48 inches set back in 1948. That daily rain total tied the amount of rain we picked up in Dayton through the entire month of June.
