Ohio city has 3 days of weather extremes
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - One Ohio city has hit record marks for heat, cool weather and rainfall all within three days of extremes.
The National Weather Service says Dayton on Monday reached a high temperature on Monday of just 62 degrees, tying the record for the chilliest maximum temperature ever recorded on Sept. 5.
Two days earlier, Dayton had sweltered in 97-degree heat. Saturday's high temperature tied the record for Sept. 3 that had been set in 1913.
Record rainfall helped the city cool off. The weather service says 2.27 inches of rain came down on Sunday, which was Dayton's wettest Sept. 4 on record.
