NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF,Neb.(KNEP)- The cold air is here to stay at least for this week with a few passing clouds during the time period as well, as Winter has made an early apperance this year.

With an arctic area of high pressure still on top of the viewing area, this is going to allow for the viewing area to see temperatures 20 degrees below normal Monday through Wednesday with highs in the 30s and low in the 10s and single digits.
