Today’s weather in Billings is so nice it is almost, what we would call, a "Goldilocks day," not too hot, not too cold, but just right.
It is a very mild day in Billings, not only here, but all over the state. Even up the Glacier National Park, it’s a simply gorgeous day, especially at Apgar Mountain.
Our thunderstorm outlook shows only isolated showers expected in west-central Montana around Missoula. Everywhere else in the state, it’s going to be kind of quiet.
The only severe weather we see is possibly along northern North Dakota.
There we have a marginal risk of severe storms.
The upper air satellite and radar imagery shows a big ridge of high pressure over most of the west with some showers dropping down out of Manitoba, Canada, into northern North Dakota.
We also see a few showers in the Great Basin area in Nevada and in Idaho.
These could become a cold front later on Tuesday evening producing some showers across south central Montana.
We could see those spotty showers show up around 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Our temperatures will slowly be warming up into the upper 80s to the low 90s on Tuesday, then drop back down to the 80s with the passage of the cold front Tuesday night.
Tonight: Mostly clear and warm. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph. Low 62°.
Tuesday: Sunny, dryer and much warmer. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph high 93°.
Wednesday: Sunny and not as hot. Northwest winds 5 to 15 mph. High 84°.
