After strong winds, damaged properties caused truck turnovers and left widespread power outages; the wind will slightly die down for most; strong winds will track eastward. The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning northeast Montana until Friday morning. A ridge of high pressure will build in southwest of the state, offering up more sunshine. Behind the passage of yesterday's front, today's day time highs will cool to the 30s and low 40s.

Tomorrow will have an increase in clouds, and daytime highs will climb back into the mid to upper 40s. A few locations in western and eastern Montana highs will only trend in the 30s. High pressure will move eastward, and another system will move in from the west during the evening. Light snow showers will fall in the mountains of central and southwest Montana.

Saturday will be mostly to partly sunny, and the highs will again stay above average for this time of the year. In most locations, high temperatures will remain in the 30s and 40s.

Sunday, the next weather maker will move in from the northwest, and that will be the state's best chance of getting snow in the lower elevations.

Have a great day.
