Friday will be much the same with a high of 48 under sunny skies. Winds from the west will pick up to 15–20 mph with gusts reaching 30 mph. Night skies will be mostly clear as the low returns to around 27, according to the forecast. Winds will die down some to 10–15 mph from the northwest. Gusts could still reach 25 mph.

A warm, sunny weekend is in the forecast for Gillette. Saturday will see sunny skies with a high of 54, followed by a high of 58 on Sunday. Saturday night’s low should be around 30 while Sunday’s will be near 38.
