Aside from a few flurries and some chilly temperatures, our Sunday hasn't been a very active weather day.

We expect that to change Monday and Tuesday.

An area of high pressure will be building in to our south, resulting in a classic setup for Chinook winds.

Gusts in the 30 to 40 mile per hour range will be common, with even stronger gusts along the Rocky Mountain Front.

The strong winds will likely cause blowing and drifting snow, which may impact travel by reducing visibility and drifting snow onto roadways.

The wind will also bring in warmer temperatures.

Sunday night will still be cool, with lows in the teens and single digits.

highs will range from the 20s in northeast Montana to as warm as the mid 30s Monday, with many spots hitting the 40s by Tuesday.
