OKLAHOMA CITY -

A high temperature record has been set in Oklahoma City during the latest wave of triple-digit heat to hit the state.

The National Weather Service says the temperature at Will Rogers World Airport reached 109 degrees Friday. Forecasters say that's two degrees hotter than the 107-degree record set on July 20 in 1936 and in 2006.

The high in Tulsa peaked at 106, three degrees shy of the record.

Daytime highs have been reaching or exceeding 100 degrees this week. Thunderstorms have erupted in parts of the state in recent days, but such wet relief has been isolated.

Weather service forecasts include a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly in southern Oklahoma, and temperatures ranging from the mid-90s to the low 100s through at least Wednesday.
