We are going to have increasing clouds tonight and decreasing clouds tomorrow as a disturbance passes by our area to the northwest. A few isolated rain showers are also possible late tonight and tomorrow morning, generally in locations north and west of Great Falls. It is also going to be cool tonight as lows are going to be in the mid to upper 40s, and it is going to be mild/warm tomorrow as highs are going to be in the mid to upper 70s in central Montana and the mid to upper 80s in eastern Montana. The wind is also going to be on the lighter side tonight and tomorrow morning, but it is going to be breezy tomorrow afternoon and evening as sustained wind speeds are going to be between 10 and 20 mph.
Mostly sunny to sunny skies are then expected from Sunday through next Friday as an upper level ridge is going to be in control of our weather. Most locations are also going to be dry during these six days, although a couple isolated rain showers and thunderstorms are possible Sunday afternoon/evening and Monday afternoon/evening.
