Temperatures continue to fluctuate as the work week plays out.

Highs are trending a bit cooler this afternoon remaining in the low to mid 70s throughout Central Montana.

The wind is expected to remain minimal today as well.

Temperatures quickly rebound back to the upper 70s and low 80s on Thursday with more wind on tap.

Sustained winds are expected to range from 15 to 25 mph with gusts around 35 to 40 mph.

The wind in combination with the low humidity levels has prompted the National Weather Service to schedule a Fire Weather Watch for Thursday afternoon.

Slightly cooler temperatures will once again settle in on Friday.

We'll see a brief bump in temperatures again on Saturday just ahead of our next weather maker.

This system is expected to pass through the state Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Some rain, although fairly limited and a few flurries are expected in the mountains.

Temperatures will drop just below average on Sunday following the passage of this system.

Still cooler temperatures will settle in on Monday with highs upper 50s.

Highs pressure is expected to rebuild again on Wednesday allowing for a boost in temperatures.
