BOZEMAN – A quiet weather pattern overall for most of Montana this week into next week. A blocking High-pressure ridge is slowly building into Montana forcing the Polar jet stream to push well north of Montana.
As the ridge gains strength, it will lock us into a dry and mild pattern for the rest of the week. Temperatures should remain warmer than normal with afternoon highs mostly in the 70s but with clear skies at night morning lows can be frosty for higher elevated valleys.
East of the divide there could be some increasing wind gusts as a dry cold front dies out over the state in the short term forecast and that in turn could produce higher fire danger.
