Temperatures will remain mild this morning before an afternoon cold front cools us off through the weekend.

Breezy conditions will prevail with sustained winds around 15 to 20 mph through the noon hour.

A few spotty showers can't be ruled out before noon, however the best chances for moisture will be this afternoon.

Slightly gustier wind will kick up as a cold front drops though the state around one o'clock.

Some rain and snow is likely throughout the foothills and in North Central Montana with the passage of this front.

A wintry mix will be most common in the lower elevations with snow in the mountains.

The mountains will pick up one to three inches on average with up to five inches in the Highwoods and Little Snowies.

A few light flurries are possible overnight with overall accumulations remaining less than an inch in the lower elevations.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the upper 30s on Thursday following the passage of this front.

Skies will gradually clear through Friday with highs more on track with average.

The colder and more seasonably average temperatures are expected to stick with us through the weekend.

Forecast models are hinting at a few possible flurries on Friday and then again Sunday and Monday.

As of now it appears the mountains will see the majority of the action through early next week.
