RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- We've seen triple digit heat over the last couple days, and if mother nature has her way, another record will be broken on Monday.

July is known for its heat in Northern Nevada, but the temperatures over the weekend and into Monday are well above average.

But the heat is not stopping adults, and even kids, from everyday activities.

A soccer camp is underway off Moana Lane. Parents and coaches said they make sure the kids have regular water breaks, and they monitor them throughout the day.

One parent said she started preparing for this triple digit heat far in advance of her kids getting on the field.

"I checked the weather, so I knew it was going to be hot," says Chanika McCombs. "I made sure this morning that we had water, I already had fluids in them before we even came out into this sun. I made sure that I had a nice cold gatorade for before, during, and after practice." McCombs has two sons at the soccer camp.

Staying outside for a long time does have its consequences though. It is important to stay hydrated and as cool as you can to avoid dehydration and heat stroke. To read the symptoms and how you can prevent it from happening to you, click here.
