MISSOULA — A weak cold front moved through which is why precipitation has been limited to upper elevations- closer to the divide- and cooler temperatures and a breeze have settled in.

Breezy conditions last through the afternoon with gusts clocking in around 20-25 MPH.

Otherwise we are mostly sunny and warm.

Temperatures trend just at average through midweek. Usually we are topping out in the upper 80s and highs this week trend in the upper 80s and low 90s.

High pressure builds back in quickly through Wednesday, so these warm temperatures and sunshine are here to stay this week.

Thursday temperatures drop to average, and highs return to the mid to upper 80s.

This weekend temperatures trend much cooler and some highs even drop to the upper 70s and low 80s by Friday!

The only chance of showers we have in the forecast are on Thursday evening when a few isolated showers start popping up in the afternoon.

Something to note is August 6th marks the last day we see a sunset at or after 9 PM.

Sunsets will start occurring before 9 PM on August 7th (Friday).

Also, we have surpassed our warmest average highs of the year.

Those occur in late July and early august when we hit 88.5 degrees as an average over a three-day span in late July.

Now average highs will continue dropping for the rest of the year.
