Warm and windy conditions are expected for much of Central Montana on Thursday.

Daytime high temperatures will trend well above average and are expected to reach the mid to high 40s.

The mild temperatures will only stick around Thursday as much colder air returns on Friday.

We'll see just enough Pacific moisture move across the state to kick off a few flurries on Friday.

Minimal accumulation is expected, most areas should see less than and inch.

North Central Montana will likely pick up a few inches along with Lewistown.

A few inches are also likely in the mountains.

Temperatures will remain cold through the weekend and aren't likely to begin warming up until Tuesday.
