***Excessive Heat Warning for Osage, Washington, Nowata, Craig, Pawnee, Tulsa, Rogers, Mayes, Creek, Wagoner, Cherokee, Okfuskee, Okmulgee Muskogee, McIntosh Counties, Latimer, and Haskell Counties Saturday from Noon to 9PM***

***Heat Advisory for Adair, Delaware, Ottawa, Chautauqua (KS), and Montgomery (KS) Counties Saturday from Noon until 9 PM***

Another sweat-fest Saturday as highs will range from 95 to 100 degrees and the heat index will range from 105 to 115 degrees! Please stay hydrated and take plenty of breaks to cool down.

Tonight into Saturday morning, there is a low chance of a few isolated showers north of I-44 with overnight lows likely to not dip below 80 degrees. As a weak cold front arrives a few thunderstorms may develop in the late afternoon and evening hours. Any rain-cooled air will be welcome. There is strongest storms could be capable of producing damaging winds and large hail.

We look to get a brief break from the extreme heat on Sunday with highs in the low 90s with a lingering spotty storm chance Sunday as well. The break will be short-lived as the heat will build back early/mid next week.

Another front may approach by the end of next week with another chance for a few storms. We'll be watching the storm chances closely as the 4th of July nears.
