A cloudy, windy and dry night prevailed over the Treasure state
overnight. Warmer Pacific air moving in from the west and gusty
downslope winds have pushed the Arctic air out of the state with

days ago temperatures at this hour were in the 20s to 30s below
zero, this morning the coldest location in the state is Sidney at
16 degrees. 43 degrees in Livingston and Great Falls was the
warmest temperature reading. Wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph were
fairly common east of the divide overnight, and the southern
foothills saw gusts near 70 mph from Livingston to Nye.

For today...A warm windy and cloudy day on tap, with
precipitation chances increasing over western sections this
afternoon as a Pacific cold front approaches. Will continue to see
strong winds along the front range today, especially southern
portions. Temperatures will range from the 30s and 40s west, to
the 40s and 50s east.
