(Oklahoma City-AP) -- It's going to be hot again today in Oklahoma.

Highs are expected to climb to about 100 today in the central part of the state, and above that in the western portions of Oklahoma.

Scott Curl is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

And Curl says stiff winds out of the southwest are bringing drier air to the state, which combined with the already dry conditions here are allowing the state to swelter under intense heat -- again.

But, he says a front expected to move through the state tonight will bring not only cooler temperatures but a slight chance for rain. Curl says the chance for rain into tomorrow in the north and central parts of the state is better than it has been in recent weeks.

He says weather models show no real hope for long term drought relief in the near term.

But he also said Oklahomans should remember the State Fair isn't too far away -- so maybe Sooners will see some rain yet.
