TULSA, OK -- Rain will bring some relief to Northeastern Oklahoma on Sunday, according to News On 6 meteorologist Dick Faurot.

"Showers and some thunder this morning are a bit of a surprise as they are well in advance of a cool front that will be moving across the state during the overnight hours," he said.

Northeastern Oklahomans should expect some thunder and brief periods of heavy rain Sunday morning, but that's just the start of what seems to be in store for the area.

"The main show is still expected later in the day and through the overnight hours associated with the cool front itself," Faurot said.

"Some of the storms later in the day and tonight may become marginally severe with damaging winds the primary threat."

Next week should see a break in the heat and humidity with highs in the 80s Monday through Wednesday.

A Heat Advisory is still in effect Sunday for several Oklahoma counties, and EMSA has issued a heat alert for the Tulsa area
