... High wind watch in effect from late Friday night through
Saturday evening...

The National Weather Service in Great Falls has issued a high
wind watch... which is in effect from late Friday night through
Saturday evening.

* Timing and main impact: ahead of a cold front approaching from
the west... southwest winds will increase late Friday night over

mph are possible... but 35 to 50 mph with gusts to 75 mph are
possible over higher terrain and through favored gaps along the
