OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Monday is expected to be a scorcher and summer camps around the metro are making plans to keep campers safe.

The entire metro will be under an excessive heat warning from noon to 9 p.m., which is the most severe advisory.

Temperatures are expected to reach into the upper 90s, but with the heat index it will feel like it's more than 110 degrees.

If possible people should stay indoors to prevent heat-related injuries. Also people are encouraged to check on the elderly and pets.  Those who have to be outside should drink plenty of water, avoid caffeine and alcohol and eat smaller meals.
