Dayton hits first heat wave of 2018

Published: Monday, June 18, 2018 @ 11:40 AM
Updated: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 @ 5:53 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, according to Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. Dayton saw two 90 degree days in a row in May and this weekend, we added two more. It officially hit 92 degrees Monday making this stretch an official heat wave in Dayton. The airport climbed to 90 degrees Saturday and 92 degrees Sunday and Monday.

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!
