NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)- After a cloudy and wet Wednesday, the theme continues some here in the region Thursday, but will be improving throughout the day with mild conditions. The warmup will then commence on Friday with more sunny weather.

During the morning Thursday, a band of moderate to heavy rainfall has impacted the Greater Nebraska with some well-needed rainfall and for the Nebraska Panhandle, the theme here has been the clouds and foggy conditions. The temperatures were in the upper 30s to mid 40s with winds relatively light with speeds around calm to 5 to 10 mph and dew points near the temperatures, making for the perfect recipe for portions of the area.
