The weak weather disturbance that impacted the state last night will continue to move east as the day plays out.

A few lingering showers are likely in Northeastern Montana through the noon hour.

Sunshine will take over on Thursday allowing for temperatures to climb to the high 40s in Central Montana.

Extreme wind will move in on Friday and last through Saturday.

Sustained winds from the southwest are expected to be around 30 to 45 mph, with gusts over 75 mph.

A high wind warning along with a high wind watch will go into effect Friday and Saturday due to the extreme wind.

The strong wind will help to push the temperatures well into the 60s on Saturday.

Significantly colder air is on track to move in late Sunday.

This system will likely kick off a few flurries and drop temperatures to the low 30s for Monday.
