Q2 Weather: The high heat takes a few days off

Posted: Updated:

We start out a new week with a kinder and gentler forecast for Billings and the surrounding area.

For example, take a look at Monday's current temperature in Billings, in the early afternoon, it's only in the upper 70s.

The thunderstorm outlook does call for a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms Monday, but only for extreme southeast Montana and eastern Wyoming.

In fact, the only batch of moisture we see is a minor shortwave weather disturbance trying to come down the Crazy Mountains, northwest of Billings.

This shortwave disturbance is actually caught up in the jet stream and will probably make it all the way to Billings later Monday evening.

In fact, our high resolution computer model shows that a small batch of rain will make it into Billings about 8: 45 p.m. Monday.

We also expect another small batch of rain to move in around 3 a.m. Tuesday.

After those showers leave, our forecast is expecting dry skies all the way into and through the weekend.

We also see our temperatures slowly start working their way up into the mid-to upper 90s by the time Wednesday and Thursday gets here.

However, these mid-to upper 90s will be moving on, and we will be cooling back down into the low 90s over the weekend.


Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a 40% chance for scattered evening showers and thunderstorms, then some isolated showers overnight. Northeast winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 61°.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny and continued not so hot. East winds 5 to 10 mph. High 89°.

Wednesday: Sunny and getting warmer again. Northwest winds 5 to 10 mph the morning becoming Northeast in the afternoon. High 94°.
