Oklahoma City reached the 100-degree mark for the first time in 2014 Saturday afternoon.

A National Weather Service observation site at Will Rogers World Airport reported a temperature of 100 degrees shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday.

It was the first time temperatures reached 100 in Oklahoma City since Aug. 31 of 2013, said Daryl Williams, a forecaster at the National Weather Service Norman Forecast Office.

Williams said the average date for the first 100 degree day in the Oklahoma City area is July 9, though temperatures have reached that mark as early as April and as late as September.

“There have been several years where there were no 100-degree days, the most recent being 2004,” Williams said.

Much of Oklahoma, including the Oklahoma City metro area, was under a heat advisory Saturday. That advisory will remain in effect for several counties in southern and eastern Oklahoma until 8 p.m. Sunday.

Tulsa, Pawnee and Osage counties were under a more severe excessive heat warning Saturday. That warning also remains in effect until 8 p.m. Sunday.

Paramedics treated nine people Saturday for heat-related illnesses and three were taken to metro area hospitals in good condition, EMSA spokeswoman Lara O’Leary said.
