A HIGH WIND WARNING has been issued for the Rocky Mountain Front until tomorrow afternoon.

Behind the passage of yesterday's minor front, the wind will increase across the northern plains, allowing the high temperatures to slightly increase. The highs will trend in the 30s and 40s. Strong winds are expected to develop during the afternoon for areas along the Rocky Mountain Front. Strong winds can cause power outages, damage trees, and if driving high profile vehicles, it can be difficult. A high-pressure system will move in from the west and track eastward. That system will create clear to mostly sunny skies. Overall, today will be a fine Fall day.

Tomorrow, another system will produce light snow showers and strong wind. The snow showers will be minimal in coverage, but with expected gusty winds, it could lead to blowing snow and reduce visibility. Mountain passes, such as Raynolds Pass, Targhee Pass, and Marias Pass and along the Idaho border, will be slick, so please take it slow. Light snow showers cannot be ruled out in the lower elevations near the Continental Divide.

Thursday into the first part of the weekend will be dry, breezy, and the temperatures will remain mild.

Saturday, a front will move through and bring widespread strong winds back into the area.

Have a great day,
