The hot temperatures continue on Friday.

Although not quite as hot as Thursday, highs on Friday are still expected in the mid to high 80s.

The breezy conditions will continue and stronger wind is likely this afternoon with the passage of a cold front.

For the most part, this cold front is expected to have minimal impacts for most this afternoon.

A few isolated stronger storms from Helena to Lewistown and south to Billings are possible.

Following the passage of this cold front, temperatures will remain slightly cooler this weekend.

A strong high pressure ridge is on track to begin building next week.

This incoming pressure system is expected to drive temperatures well into the 90s by Wednesday.
