TULSA, Oklahoma – A frontal boundary moving across the state provided some relief from the excessive heat in northeast Oklahoma Tuesday.

Tulsa set a new record Monday with a high of 106 degrees. Tuesday's high is expected to be a little cooler, with temperatures in the low 90's.

"Yesterdays high temperatures will not be matched today as a weak front is located south of Tulsa this morning. A few showers and storms will be possible for the next few hours along the far northeastern OK and southeastern Kansas area," wrote News On 6 meteorologist Alan Crone

Showers and storms continue to move eastward this morning and should be out of the Tulsa metro area before noon.  

Read Alan Crone's weather blog.

"A few models continue to hint at the possibility of a complex of storms moving out of SE Colorado into Western Kansas later tonight," Crone said, "And then tracking into northern OK by early Wednesday morning."

Tuesday is also an Ozone Alert day. Residents are encouraged to carpool to work and avoid filling up or mowing the lawn during the daytime.

The cooler air won't last long. Temperatures will warm back up into the upper 90's Wednesday and reach triple digits heading into the weekend.

EMSA said from midnight Monday morning to 8 p.m. Monday evening, it responded to ten calls with symptoms of heat related illness.  Seven patients were transported to the hospital, but none were in serious or critical condition.

EMSA reminds everyone to drink plenty of plenty of non-Caffeinated, non-alcoholic beverages if you are planning on spending any time in the excessive heat.

They also remind parents never to leave children or pets inside a hot car.
