High wind warnings have been issued for southwest Montana for your Wednesday. Winds are expected to be between 20-40 mph with gusts in excess of 60 mph.

BUTTE: High: 43; Low: 13. Expect winds to gust in excess of 50 mph at times in the region as a cold front drops temperatures quickly late in the morning.
