TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa County remains under an Excessive Heat Warning and the rest of eastern Oklahoma under a Heat Advisory Wednesday even though a weak cool front is expected to cross the state this afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued the warning for Tulsa County and the advisory for the rest of eastern Oklahoma until 8 p.m.

News On 6 weather alerts

News On 6 meteorologist Alan Crone says the cool front will raise the chances for showers and thunderstorms as it moves across the state, but it is not expected to help with the hot temperatures. Tulsa is expected to hit 97 degrees Wednesday with heat index values near 105.

The front will have a slight impact on temperatures on Thursday with Tulsa only expected to get to 93 degrees. But by Saturday, temperatures will climb to near 100 with Sunday in the upper 90s.
