Patchy ice remains a concern for secondary roads and areas along the Hi-Line on Thursday morning.

Temperatures will continue to climb as high pressure rebuilds over the Western United States.

Most of Montana will be well into the 40s Thursday afternoon with mostly sunny skies.

Winds will ramp up on Friday allowing for temperatures to climb to the next level.

Much of Central Montana will reach the high 50s and a few 60s are not out of the question.

Unfortunately a cold front is on track to drop through Montana on Saturday.

This will bring a round of rain that is expected to transition to snow overnight.

Much like Wednesday, freezing drizzle is possible along the leading edge of this system.

Temperatures will once again trend well below average following this front.
