Gusty westerly winds will start to develop along the Rocky Mountain front and plains today and tomorrow. Great Falls will have stronger winds, but the Capitol winds will be reasonably calm. Saturday, light winds, and lower pressure allow warmer temperatures to enter Helena Valley. Late Saturday, a cold front will pass through Montana, bringing colder conditions along with rain, freezing rain, and snow will likely moving from north to south in the region. Generally, 1-3 inches should fall across much of the lower elevations with up to 6inches in the mountains. Sunday temperates take a drastic dip; highs will be in the teens and 20's.
