Our winds have picked up a bit on Thursday.
Gusts of 30 to 40 miles per hour have been reported across much of North Central Montana, with stronger gusts, as usual, along the Rocky Mountain Front.
While annoying, our stronger winds have acted to drive up our temperatures.
We're already seeing some 50 degree readings Thursday afternoon, with most spots set to climb a few more degrees.
Our winds will begin to die down through the evening, and won't be quite as strong on Friday.
Even with weaker winds, Friday is looking very warm.
Highs in the 50s will be common across the area, with some spots even nearing 60 degrees!
Temperatures will then go on a cooling trend into the weekend.
