Although still a bit breezy, the wind on Monday will be much less prominent than this past weekend.

Daytime highs will continue to trend well above average today, reaching the mid to upper 40s this afternoon.

The wind is expected to pick up a bit again this evening as a cold front moves into the state.

This cold front will increase the chances of snow in the mountains and a wintry mix around the Capitol.

A stray shower can't be ruled out for Great Falls, however most areas should remain dry.

Temperatures will stay slightly cooler on Tuesday following the passage of this front.

Although still above average highs in the low 40s are expected.

High pressure will rebuild as Wednesday rolls around, allowing for mostly clear skies and breezy conditions.

Another cold front is on track to pass through the state on Thursday.

This front will likely increase the wind which will contradict the cooler temperatures.

The above average and breezy conditions are expected to last through the weekend.
