A HIGH WIND WARNING is in effect for North-central Montana.

Today will be another windy. Strong southwest will bring record-breaking warmth to the state and may cause power outages to areas located along the Rocky Mountain Front and off Hi-Line. Howling winds, mild temperatures, and low relative humidity can create elevated fire danger in areas where grasses are dry and exposed. The highs will climb into the mid-60s for portions of eastern Montana.

Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy, and the highs will stay in the 40s and 50s. A fast-moving system will bring areas of light snow to the mountains west of the Divide. Snow showers will fall at pass level, so if traveling across Marias, Kings Hill, and Roger Pass, prepare for slick conditions. Light snow showers may spill across north-central Montana.

Thursday, a few flurries may fall in the morning, but besides that, expect a dry and calm day.

Have a great day,
