Except for the wind, Thursday has been a beautiful day.

Friday is looking pretty similar.

We’ll be dealing with sunshine for most of the day, and even warmer temperatures!

Highs will be in the mid 70s to around 80 degrees!

Unfortunately the warmth, wind, and dry air will lead to an increased risk for grassland fires.

A Red Flag Warning is in effect Friday for Northeast Montana.

The fire threat will diminish as a cold front starts to push in Friday evening.

That will bring with it a few showers and storms in the evening and overnight hours.
