A HIGH WIND WARNING continues for north-central Montana and along the Rocky Mountain Front into noon today.

A FLOOD WARNING continues for the Milk River near Glasgow.

An AREAL FLOOD ADVISORY continues for northern Phillips and Valley Counties for melting snow.

A WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued for north-central Montana and along the Rocky Mountain Front for Friday into Saturday.

The temperatures will remain mild, and windy conditions will continue. The high temperatures for today will stay in the 40's and 50's, but a High Wind Warning will remain in effect until noon today. Strong west winds will be sustained between 30-45 mph and will be gusting up to 70 mph at times. A cold front will pass through the state this afternoon and slightly drop the temperatures, and will bring in a scattered mix of rain/snow showers, and possibly even an isolated thunderstorm. The showers will be brief, and the snow totals are light. Thursday, we will have partly to mostly cloudy skies and lighter winds. A mild disturbance will cause a few flurries to fly, but Friday is when the state will have a better chance of accumulating snow showers and colder temperatures. Friday's disturbance will first hit the Rocky Mountain Front early in the morning, but by late afternoon/evening, the capital will have snow showers. The high temperatures for Friday will start relatively mild in portions of the state, but along the Hi-Line, the high temperatures will be in the teens and 20's. By Friday night, the state will are arctic air and snow. Friday's temperatures and snow will remind us that winter is not over. Subfreezing temperatures and snow showers will carry us into next week.

Enjoy your day and grab a 🧢 because today will be 💨
