NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP)- As high pressure builds into central Nebraska the combination of clear skies, dry air and light winds allowed temperatures to quickly fall to sub freezing levels. The core of the coldest air ran along an axis from the Northwest Sandhills to North Platte, where morning lows ranged from the upper 20s to low 30s. As high pressure drifts east, warmer air will find its way into the Panhandle and southwest. Highs on Thursday will range from the lower to mid 50s in the North Central to the low 70s southwest. Skies will begin sunny but a swath of clouds will drift from west to east across the state.

During the weekend a trough of low pressure will traverse the Dakotas.

Seasonal weather with temperatures in the 60s will continue through Monday. Tuesday will warm into the low 70s with better rain chances Tuesday night.
