NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)- After a warm and dry day Monday, these conditions will only get warmer and stay dry Tuesday with these conditions continuing the rest of the workweek.

Due to an area of high pressure to our southeast, this will influence hot conditions here across the viewing area Tuesday with mainly sunny conditions as well with highs in the mid to upper 90s. Winds will remain breezy throughout the day with wind speeds around 5 to 15 mph and dew points will be on the smothering side as well, with values in the 60s. Overnight Tuesday, temperatures will be dropping into the 60s with mainly clear to fair weather conditions with winds still being on the breezy conditions.
