KANSAS CITY, Mo. - We are gearing up for a scorcher Friday.
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the Kansas City metro area from noon to 7 p.m. Friday.
The 41 Action Weather teams says this could end up being the hottest day of the summer.
Most of the area will be in the upper 90s, but there is a chance a few spots could hit 100 degrees. Heat indices could reach close to 105.
The NWS warns that if you are working outside, you should take extra precautions to stay safe. They recommend working in the early morning or late evening hours and drinking plenty of water.
The Kansas City Parks Department is offering free or reduced admission this weekend to help beat the heat. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/14Jj4Go.
