August will be hotter, drier than normal, National Weather Service predicts

After a month with slightly above average temperatures and severe weather than included a tornado in Troy, August is likely to be hotter and drier than normal.

July was active with above normal precipitation during storms that led to flooding for some and a few daily rainfall records, the National Weather Service in Wilmington reported.

However, for August, the NWS Climate Prediction Center is calling for an increased chance of above-normal temperatures and below-normal precipitation.

Normal highs in Dayton in August are around 84.6 degrees, and normal lows are about 64.3 degrees. Normal precipitation for Dayton in August is about 2.96 inches.

This announcement comes as the Miami Valley sees a Heat Advisory on Wednesday, with heat index values reaching up to around 103.
