NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)-After a warm start of the workweek, that trend will continue into the day Tuesday. Going into the day Wednesday, our weather conditions will change dramatically with a cold front moving through.

Due to an area of high pressure centered to the southeast portion of the country, will continue to pump in hot and humid conditions for the day Tuesday with sunny skies with highs in the low to upper 90s. Some places could approach record setting temperatures for Tuesday. During the overnight Tuesday, temperatures will drop into the 50s with clouds and rain chances on the increase after midnight and winds will shift towards the northeast, continuing to influence the moisture around here.

The amount of rainfall that is anticipated throughout the day Wednesday into Thursday will be between .25 to .50 of an inch with locally higher amounts.
