Q2 Weather: Midday update

The cold wind is continuing to make conditions miserable across the entire area, but especially along I-90 between Billings and Livingston in the Big Timber area. At least three semi-trailer trucks have been blown over along that area Tuesday morning. Gusts up to 60 mph will make travel difficult, producing areas of blowing and drifting snow. As a crust forms on the snow with wwarmng temperatures, the threat should decrease.

Areas of snow and rain snowers will continue to fall all across SOuthern Montana this afternoon. Wind of 15 to 30 mph will be common. Warm air is moving into the region, and while most temperatures will continue to warm to the mid-30 to 40s for afternoon highs Wednesday through Friday, periods of wind will remain. After the current showers move out to the east during the evening and overnight, a fairly dry pattern will take hold likely through the weekend.
