Frost hangs from trees on Havre's Second Avenue Thursday morning. Unseasonably cold weather has been combined with fog on the Hi-Line in recent days, along with light snow. Despite a previously forecast high of 32 Thursday for Havre, National Weather Service's recording station at the Havre City-County Airport recorded a high of 19 degrees and a low of 1 degree, overnight. That is expected to change, with the highs predicted today in this region ranging from 40 in Big Sandy to 37 in Chester and 30 in Harlem, with 41 predicted near Hays. The temps are expected to stay a bit warmer over the weekend, with highs in the upper 20s to low 30s. Temperatures are expected to dip again Sunday night, with lows on the Hi-Line predicted to be in the single digits to slightly below zero before warming up again to highs in the upper 20s and even 30s in Chester by midweek. No new snow is predicted before a slight chance of snow Sunday and again Tuesday night through Thursday. The Climate Prediction Center of National Weather Service seasonal outlook issued March 16 predicts an equal chance of above- or below-normal temperatures and precipitation through June.
