NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - We’re looking at another week mainly controlled by a high pressure system. The high pressure system we will see this week is more powerful than last weeks. What this means is that systems will move around it while it moves at its own pace, meaning we can expect it to hover over the midwest for a few days. During this time we will see very few clouds and more heat than usual.

Temperatures won’t quite cross the line into the high 80s, but we will most likely see highs in the mid 80s throughout plenty of the week. This is because the high pressure, while prohibiting clouds, will allow plenty of heat to radiate into our atmosphere and keep our ground warm. This does not mean that we won’t have cool nights, as we can expect lows in the 40s throughout plenty of the week.

As far as smoke goes, we’re finally seeing some clearing skies as we had a large upper air low pressure system clear out the smoke. It will be followed by a high pressure system from the south, which means that we won’t see the smoke return for a few days.
