As if we haven’t had enough of the wind, some areas along the Rockey Mountain Front will get another round on Friday.

The strongest winds will once again remain in the higher elevations and north of Helena.

Temperatures are on track to hit the low 40s today for most of our area.

This weekend is shaping up to stay cool and dry with little to no wind.

Our next weather system is on track to move in on Monday.

This will bring periods of heavy snow to the mountains and some moderate snow to the lower elevations.

Forecast models still differ slightly on this next system but seem to be trending toward snow just in time for Christmas.

Temperatures will trend toward seasonal averages this next week.
