NORTH PLATTE, Neb.

During the morning Monday, temperatures were where we should be this time of year during the morning time with indicies in the 40s to 50s with winds out of the south and east with speeds of 5 to 15 mph and dew points near saturation. Also, the region were dealing with clear conditions with hardly a cloud in the sky. The reason why we are seeing this is because an area of high pressure is to our south and east, making the air feel soupy and warm.
