First Alert Forecast: Sunny and breezy


A warming trend sets up this weekend. A building ridge of high pressure will bring dry skies and warming temperatures through the weekend. High temperatures will be in the 70s today with ample sunshine. Winds will be breezy with gusts as high as 20 mph.

Temperatures will be in the mid 70s to lower 80s Saturday, with 80s to low 90s Sunday.

Next week, the extreme heat returns with highs in the 90s in Missoula. Temperatures will be in the mid 80s to lower 90s in Bozeman, Kalispell and Bozeman. Shower chances appear slim to none. The only mention of rain is a slight chance of storms around Butte and Bozeman late next week as some monsoon moisture works its way northward into southwest Montana.
