Surface winds have detached from the stronger flow caused by the abnormally strong upper-level jet that has caused the very windy conditions for the past couple of days will help taper winds off through this evening. High Wind Warnings will still be in place through this afternoon, highlighting wind gusts up to 75 mph, though the higher wind gusts will mainly be along the Rocky Mountain Front and adjacent plains.

Light showers will still be possible along Rocky Mountain Front and the Hi-line through this afternoon but will taper off, leaving warm and dry conditions for the rest of the week and onto the weekend. Upper-level ridging builds back in helping to promote above average temperatures back into the 80’s for the latter half of the week. The next chance of showers in North Central Montana will likely be on Sunday as a weak disturbance enters the area bringing more widespread precipitation and chances of thunderstorms. Temperatures look to continue in the 80’s next week.
