Despite a smattering of rain across the state, the National Weather Service is keeping heat warnings and advisories in place.

Some parts of Oklahoma saw more than an inch of rain Monday morning.

But the National Weather Service is keeping in place a heat advisory for central and western Oklahoma till Tuesday night and excessive heat warning for eastern Oklahoma till Saturday.

“We got triple digits pretty much every day except for sunday: 99 which is pretty close to triple digit,” Meteorologist John Pike says.

Pike says the rain will likely just add to the humidity and heat indices which could be as high as 108 this week.

He also expects over the next three months for the drought conditions to persist or intensify.
