DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – After a week with highs in the 80’s, temperatures have taken a tumble around the Miami Valley just as June begins.  This morning areas north of Dayton dropped to into the upper 40’s including Bellefontaine which fell to 46.

“Highs today will be running 10-15 degrees below normal,” Meteorologist Tara Hastings explains, “This chilly air mass prompted freeze warnings and frost advisories for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  While the Miami Valley isn’t going to get that cold it gives some perspective as to how cold this air mass really is.”

This isn’t the first time Dayton has started June with highs in the 60’s.  Back in 2012 the high was 64 and a half an inch of rain was measured at Dayton International Airport.

“Temperatures will slowly rise and by the middle of the week we’ll be back to highs in the lower 80’s,” Hastings says.

The clouds will stick around for the day but showers finally ending by the end of the afternoon. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
