Will road signs be in Montenegrin alphabet?

I'm doing a cycle trip and going through Montenegro. Obviously they have their own language but just wondering if things will be in the "Western" alphabet or using their own alphabet?

Just thinking if I'm cycling and using some sort of map, I'll need to be able to distinguish the local letters/alphabet.

They are mostly in two languages, but to 99% will have the western alphabet on it too

They will to your eyes use the alphabet you are accustomed to. Serbo-Croat has the odd extra letter here and there but it's not like Russian or Greek

To my experience, the Montenegrin "language" (actually its called Serbo-Croatian, there is really no difference to Serbian etc, except accent) is mainly written in the Latin alphabet, which I assume is what you call "western". Its in Serbia and Macedonia they use Cyrillic.
