From News9 Meteorologist Stephanie Malone...

Temperatures will continue to climb today into the triple digits.  Take the hot temps, the dry air and add on some gusty winds and that makes for high fire danger today.  There is a red flag warning today for northwestern and west central Oklahoma, so make sure to take your fire safety precautions today.

There is a slight chance for some storms later today near the Oklahoma Kansas border, but other than that, most of the state will remain high and dry.

We will have one last day on Wednesday of sweltering heat before a stationary front sets up bringing us a chance for storms Thursday and Friday and a slight relief from the heat.

Stay with News9 and News9.com, we'll keep you advised.
