Despite cooler temperatures, the fire danger remains high throughout Montana.

Much of the Hi-Line and Northeastern Montana are under stage one burn restrictions due to the fire concerns.

Highs on Friday are expected to hit the low 80s with slightly breezy conditions.

Temperatures will trend more average on Saturday as high pressure begins to rebuild over the state.

The cooler and more mild conditions will give way to a hot spell as we wrap up the weekend.

Highs on Sunday are expected to reach the low 90s and continue to climb as we enter the work week.

A very strong high pressure ridge will allow for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 90s through Tuesday.

As of now it looks like more average conditions will return on Thursday.
