A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for Missoula/Bitterroot Valleys until noon.
An Air Stagnation Advisory remains in effect until tomorrow morning for areas west of the Divide.
A High Wind Watch will go into effect tomorrow morning for the Rocky Mountain Front, Eastern Teton, Judith Basin, Eastern Pondera, Toole, eastern Glacier, and Cascade.

With the temperatures continuing to warm up, the snow will continue to melt, and the road conditions will continue to improve. Most of the mountain passes roads are still scattered with slush, so please take it slow. The entire state's high temperatures will be back in the 50s. A weak front will bring breezy to windy conditions today.

Tomorrow afternoon, another front will work its way through the state. But before the front moves through, the highs will again reach the upper 50s, and some areas in eastern Montana will reach the low 60s. A mix of snow and rain showers will fall near the mountains west of the Divide. Southwest winds will be brutally for those located along the east slopes of the Rocky Mountain Front. The wind is expected to gust up to 80 mph at times. Travel may become difficult for high profile vehicles or for those pulling trailers.

Halloween will be a "Bone Chilling Day." The passage of Friday's front will drop the temperatures nearly 10 degrees. A ridge of high pressure will continue to build over the western half of the U.S., and that will allow the entire state to have clear to mostly sunny skies.

Sunday, high pressure will make its way into the state, and the temperatures will climb to the upper 50s and low 60s.

Enjoy the 50s and 60s because a colder air mass will move in by next weekend, and the temperatures will fall back in the teens and 20s.

Have a great day.
