NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)- After a cool start to the workweek, conditions will turn warm and breezy Wednesday into Saturday with some fire concerns Wednesday.

With the area of high pressure being more centered to the south and east, this will allow for the viewing area to see temperatures on the warm side Wednesday into Saturday.
