OKLAHOMA CITY —

The National Weather Service says much of Oklahoma could see triple-digit temperatures with even higher heat indices.

A heat advisory is in place from 7 a.m. Monday until 1 a.m. Wednesday for nearly all the state. Forecasters say daytime high temperatures will range from the upper 90s to near 105 degrees. Overnight low temperatures will only drop into the middle and upper 70s.

Forecasters say the heat index will range from 105 degrees to 110 degrees.

The weather service says anyone spending time outdoors should know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke and take appropriate precautions.
