A passing cold front will help to kick up the wind and increase the cloud cover on Monday.

Despite the passing cold front temperatures will still reach the mid to high 60s for most.

Winds are expected to pick up throughout the day with gust around 30mph.

North central Montana will likely experience wind gusts over 40mph.

The strong wind and low humidity levels will cause for a heightened fire concern over the next few days.

The greatest area for concern will be in Northeastern Montana.

Temperatures will continue to climb through Wednesday as a strong high pressure ridge builds over the state.

A few weather disturbances are expected to return on Thursday and last into the weekend.

These systems are expected to bring periods of rain and thunderstorms.
