A strong upper level ridge remains in control of our weather.
This keeps our skies clear, and raises temperatures, for most of us, well into the 50s by Wednesday afternoon.
Areas to the southwest and northeast, like Helena and Glasgow, will be slightly cooler.
Winds are once again not a huge factor on Friday, but the occasional gust to around 25 mph in Great Falls is not our of the question.
Nationally, travel looks good, with a bit of rain and snow on the west coast, and some light snow in New England.
