Tuesday has already been a windy day, with gusts over 70 miles per hour reported along the Front.

High winds have been fairly localized so far, but will become more widespread Wednesday.

A High Wind Warning is in effect for much of the area, with gusts up to 60 miles per hour expected.

Even away from the warned area, winds will gust over 40 miles per hour.

These strong winds will once again bring mild temperatures.

Expect another day with highs in the 40s.

Winter weather, including a Blizzard Warning, remains in the forecast along and west of the divide.

Whiteout conditions are expected Tuesday evening through early Wednesday for places like Babb, Saint Mary, East Glacier Park, and especially Marias Pass.

Farther east only a few flurries and no accumulation are expected for Wednesday.
