NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -After a rainy and snowy atmosphere here across the region Monday, conditions have dramatically improved, but we will be dealing with cool temperatures and partly cloudy conditions Tuesday with the return of some rain in the area Wednesday.

During the morning Tuesday, the area was experiencing mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with foggy conditions as well. The reason why we are seeing the fog is because we are seeing temperatures in the 20s and 30s and with dew points in the 20s and 30s as well and relatively calm winds, this is allowing for the fog Tuesday morning. Persons need to take the proper precautions including driving slower than usual and also travel with low beam lights.
