Jody Correro, cooperative observer with the National Weather Service, said last night’s temperature was 60 degrees — 4 degrees lower than the previous record set in 1956.
Correro added that it is now the all time record low for the day, since 1948.
He said Cleveland first hit the 60-degree mark at 1:02 a.m., and for the most part, the temperature stayed constant until after sunrise.
At 7 a.m. this morning, it was still 60 degrees outside he said.
According to Correro, the average minimum temperature has been 72 degrees.
Although last night’s temperature broke the record for the lowest temperature on July 25, it did not break the record for the all-time lowest temperature for the month of July.
Correro said the coolest temperature on record for the month of July is 54 degrees, and that was set on July 15, 1967.
