NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb (KNEP)- If you were stuck in the office on Monday, here’s hoping you can escape for a little outdoor time Tuesday. It will be a curtain call, the second of two days, in which temperatures soar into the 70s over the Sandhills, with mid to upper 60s out in the Panhandle.
