NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)- After a warm and mainly nice weekend across the region, conditions will remain on the nice side, but with warmer temperatures Monday into Tuesday. There will be cooler and wetter changes coming by Wednesday.

Due to an area of high pressure continuing to influence our weather Monday into Tuesday, this will continue to pump in very hot temperatures for this time of year and the highs will approach the low to upper 90s with a southerly to southeasterly flow of 5 to 15 mph. Some areas could reach record level highs, especially in Greater Nebraska. There will be ample sunshine during this time period too with hardly any sort of major cloud cover. Overnight lows will cool down into the low to mid 50s to help cool the atmosphere overnight.
