Spring is in the air!

Breezy winds combined with high pressure building across the region allows conditions to dry and temperatures to warm. Thursday and Friday temperatures are expected to be above average. Many areas will see temperatures in the 70s on Friday with eastern Montana even reaching near 80. A cold front pushes through the state on Friday afternoon and evening. This front will produce showers and thunderstorms. More showers possible on Saturday. The cold front also brings in cooler temperatures for the weekend, most areas seeing high temperatures top off in the 50s. High pressure builds again by next week and warmer air returns.
