NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)- After a cool and rainy start to the week, our conditions are on the uptrend with warming conditions as well for our Wednesday into our Friday.

During the morning Wednesday, conditions were sunny to partly cloudy for the most part with temperatures cool for the morning hours with indicies in the 40s and the winds were out of the north with speeds around 5 to 15 mph and the dew points were on the downtrend as well. The reason behind that is because we are starting to see the effects of the new area of high pressure, allowing for conditions to improve.
