SAVANNAH (AP) - An unseasonably chilly day in Savannah has broken a 134-year-old record for the lowest maximum temperature on May 18.

Steady rain and cloudy skies in Savannah helped hold the high temperature Monday to just 66 degrees. The National Weather Service said that broke the previous record of 71 degrees set in 1875.

While coastal Georgia has seen highs soar past 90 degrees for much of May, temperatures hovered in the high 50s for much of the day Monday.

The Weather Service predicts Savannah will warm up a little Tuesday, with a high of 70 degrees.
