BOZEMAN - A weak cold front is racing across Montana Friday evening with only a few showers and thunderstorms mostly over central and northern counties.

A strong westerly flow will keep temperatures hovering near to slightly above normal on Saturday but this could also help produce gusty surface winds by Saturday afternoon.

The next weather maker will be a warm front on Sunday. Temperatures will jump into the upper 70s to mid 80s and that is slightly above normal for Sunday. A side effect will be gusty surface winds again Sunday afternoon. Behind this warm front will be the first in a series of pacific cold fronts and storms.

Beginning Monday evening through Friday morning numerous pacific storms will pass through Montana producing scattered showers, a few thunderstorms, and lowering snow levels. As each system passes through temperatures will fall and will end up below normal beginning Wednesday falling into the 50s and 60s.
