Weather in Dayton in May = getting outdoors on the trails!

Dayton weather

The weather in May in the Dayton, Ohio area will include average temperatures with a high of 71 degrees and a low of 51 degrees. The chance of even light rain is less than 50 percent on average, and the probability of at least partly sunny skies on any given day is 62 percent. In southwest Ohio, May typically is considered one of the most appealing months for weather. In addition, because Dayton is on the western edge of the Eastern time zone, the sun will not set until after 8:30pm.

Proximity to Trails and Outdoor Recreation Opportunities

As the "Outdoor Adventure Capital of the Midwest," the Dayton region has tremendous outdoor recreation opportunities, anchored by myriad trail systems. The State of Ohio allows for the creation of park districts for the preservation of open space and recreation, and so Five Rivers MetroParks (serving Montgomery County/Dayton), Greene County Parks and Trails, and the Miami County Park District overlay the municipal and county park systems to provide an abundance of natural open space in the region. Dayton's rivers and creeks, along with abandoned rail systems, provide the linear corridors that serve as the architecture for the open space and made many of the trails possible. From Dayton's paved trail network — the nation’s largest — to soft surface trails to water trails, Dayton and the surrounding area offers all tread surfaces and outdoor experiences for every taste within 15 minutes of downtown.
