TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory covering much of the state through the weekend.

Forecasters issued the advisory Saturday for central, northeastern and southern parts of Oklahoma. The advisory includes Oklahoma City and Tulsa.

High temperatures could reach nearly 100 degrees by Sunday, and the weather service says the heat index will cause it to feel as high as 110 degrees outdoors.

The combination of the stifling heat and humidity can lead to illness and residents are being advised to stay out of the sun if possible, check up on neighbors and drink plenty of fluids.

The heat will continue into next week, with highs in the low to mid-90s. There’s a chance for showers or thunderstorms in northeast Oklahoma late Monday and Tuesday.
