Weather forecasters are predicting a hot week, starting today, but the high temperature will have to reach above 100 to break any Findlay records during the next seven days.

Friday’s high temperature in the city was 89, according to measurements taken at the Findlay Water Pollution Control Center, which has been keeping the city’s weather records since 1894. That wasn’t close to the Findlay record for June 29 of 100 degrees, set in 1934.

These are Findlay’s temperature records for the next seven days:

  • June 30 — 100 degrees, set in 1906.
  • July 1 — 102 degrees, set in 1913.
  • July 2 — 101 degrees, 1901.
  • July 3 — 101 degrees, 1911.
  • July 4 — 103 degrees, 1911.
  • July 5 — 105 degrees, 1911.
  • July 6 — 102 degrees, 1897.

Evidently, 1911 was a hot one in Findlay.

On Friday, WTOL meteorologist Robert Shiels was predicting a Findlay high of 100 degrees on Sunday, July 1, which would not break Findlay’s record for the date.

The National Weather Service on Friday was not predicting that high temperatures in Findlay would reach 100 or above during the next week.
