Behind our latest cold front, temperatures on Thursday are much cooler than they were Wednesday.

We've seen temperatures fall any where between 15 and 30 degrees in the past 24 hours.

Actual air temperatures Thursday afternoon range from single digits on the Hi-Line, to as "warm" as the lower 20s in Helena.

In addition to the cold we're also tracking some areas of light snow.

That will continue into the evening hours for places like Great Falls, Helena, and Lewistown, but clear out overnight.

Less than an inch of additional accumulation is expected.

Skies will be clearing overnight too, which will allow our temperatures to fall even further.

Overnight lows will range from lower teens near Helena, to single digits near Great Falls, to below zero along the Hi-Line.

Fortunately temperatures will warm back into the 20s and 30s Friday, with the exception of Northeast Montana.

The warmer temperatures come with a price as usual, winds will occasionally gust over 30 miles per hour Friday.

We're still tracking another surge of arctic air set to plunge our temperatures below zero for much of next week.
