Coolest day in over two months

Posted on: 10:28 pm, August 19, 2012, by

Dense cloud cover combined with periods of rainfall and a northeasterly wind kept temperatures from breaking 80° Sunday afternoon. 

This produced the coolest high temperature since the high of 73° on June 6.  The normal Richmond high for this date is 88°.

The coolest high ever recorded on August 19 was 68° back in 1957.
