TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued an
excessive heat warning for five eastern Oklahoma counties as
temperatures across the state are expected to reach triple digits.
Wagoner, Tulsa, Rogers, Sequoyah and Muskogee counties are
covered under the warning, which is in effect until 7 p.m.
Much of the rest of eastern Oklahoma remains under a heat
advisory until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Forecasters say a strong upper level ridge of high pressure will
remain in place over the region until at least the middle of the
week and high temperatures are expected to climb into the lower
100s each day across Oklahoma.
On Sunday, Frederick and Hobart in southwestern Oklahoma
recorded highs of 106 degrees while Stillwater had a 105-degree
reading. It reached 104 in Tulsa and in Gage.
