GREAT FALLS — High pressure is yet again dictating our forecast as we head into the weekend.
Daytime highs are expected to hit the mid to upper 90s for most of our area.
The Hi-Line and northeastern Monday will likely see a few triple digits this afternoon.
Storms are on track to pass through Central Montana this afternoon.
These storms are expected to be mostly dry in nature, producing small hail, lightning, and very gusty winds.
Because of the low humidity and expectation of gusty winds Friday afternoon, the National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Warning for all of Central and North Central Montana.
The current weather pattern is expected to hold up this weekend, in turn allowing for more hot weather.
Originally it looked as if the current high pressure system would break down this weekend, but now it's appearing to hold steady.
Temperatures however will still take a slight dip as we head into next week.
