Q2 Weather: Short term showers

Much as we saw early Thursday, a band of showers has developed along a line where the cold air in Eastern Montana is colliding with the warmer air coming in from the west. The difference is this morning, the temperatures aren't as cold, and the line of showers is mainly east of Billings. A chance of showers...snow, or a rain/snow mix...remains this morning scattered across the area. Conditions will dry through the afternoon as this line moves east.

Highs will be mainly in the 40s, and lows mainly in the 20s through the weekend and into next week. After today's showers, a dry pattern is firmly in place through the first part of next week.

Billings Forecast:

Today: A chance of rain and snow before noon. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 44. West wind 10 to 25mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 25. West southwest wind around 20 mph.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 45. West southwest wind 15 to 25 mph.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 27. Southwest wind 10 to 20 mph.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 46. West wind around 20 mph.
