 Kettering is located five miles south of Dayton, which is near the center of the Miami Valley River Valley. Kettering is in a “moderate” climate region. The highest elevation in Kettering is 1,090 feet above sea level; the lowest elevation is 750 feet; and the mean elevation is 920 feet. Precipitation — which is rather evenly distributed throughout the year — and moderate temperatures help to make the Miami Valley a rich agricultural region. High relative humidity during much of the year causes some discomfort to people with allergies. Temperatures of zero or below will be experienced in about four years out of five. Extreme temperatures are usually of short duration. The downward slope of about 700 feet in the 163 miles of the Miami River may have some moderating influence on the winter temperatures in the Miami Valley.
The average last occurrence of freezing temperatures in the spring is mid-April, while the average first occurrence in the autumn is late October. Cold, polar air flowing across the Great Lakes causes much cloudiness during the winter and is accompanied by frequent snow flurries. These add little to the total snowfall.
