A ridge of high pressure continues to build over the state keeping us dry and mild throughout the next several days. Towards the end of the week, it will begin to weaken and move further to the east and we return to unsettled weather and seasonable temperatures. Winds increases across central Montana Sunday night and stay gusty right through Wednesday, peaking in strength Monday night into Tuesday morning. There will be near whiteout conditions east of the Rockies due to blowing snow. With temperatures fluctuating above and below freezing, expect black ice over the next several mornings. Take it slow as your headed out to work and on the roads!
