Today's temperatures will slightly be above average, and the highs will remain in the mid to upper '60s for central Montana, the low '70s for eastern Montana, and the upper '50s for portions of western Montana. The wind will howl all day throughout the state. The strongest winds will blow off the northern Rocky Front, and with the increase in the wind, the warming of the temperatures, and the low humidity can increase fire concerns for grasslands. It is encouraged not to burn any debris today. By the afternoon/evening hour, scattered rain showers will fall with a few rumbles of thunder. Tomorrow a high-pressure ridge will bring mostly clear skies to the state. The howling wind will slightly subside, and the temperature will be in the '60s. The eastern portion of the state temperatures may even hit the low '70s. Wednesday, will by far be the warmest day of the year so far. The temperatures will be 20 to 30 degrees above average. The highs will reach the low '80s and mid to upper '70s. Wednesday night, unsettling weather will enter the state and will stick around until Thursday. Thursday, a cold front will move through the state and bring severe thunderstorms.

Enjoy your day,
