Little Relief In Sight From Heat Across Oklahoma (Jun 27, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The National Weather Service says a summer of heat that includes temperatures often reaching 100 degrees or more is settling into Oklahoma with little relief in sight.

Weather service meteorologist Marc Austin in Norman said Monday that the best hope for relief is a tropical system that would bring rain to the state. But Austin said that typically doesn't occur until August or September.

The weather service has issued a heat advisory and warns residents to avoid prolonged exposure to the heat.

Also, a grass fire was reported just north of Edmond in Logan County. Assistant Edmond Fire Chief Tim Wheeler said no injuries were reported and the cause of the blaze was not immediately known.
