Q2 Weather: The soup of the day followed by warmer temps on Friday

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - It was a cold, cloudy and foggy morning here in the magic city of Billings this Thursday morning.

Much of that fog has hung around throughout most of the day.

As a result, the temperatures have not warmed up much. The day started at 19 degrees and as of 2 p.m., temperatures have only warmed 3 degrees to 22 degrees.

It has been cloudy and gloomy from one side of the state to the other, even up to Glacier National Park. It’s been cloudy there all day with snow and rain showers in that area.

The Doppler radar shows a fresh batch of moisture tracking across northwestern Montana into the north-central Montana.

So far, most of the snow continues to move away from the Billings area.

However, we still have a Winter Weather Advisory until 5 p.m. for freezing rain and snow of 1 to 3 inches for Glacier and Pondera counties.

The forecast map shows a new weather disturbance moving through that part of the state.

The thing about this next system is that it's moving in from the Pacific Northwest and is bringing slightly warmer temperatures.

So as the next system moves across the state, it’ll kick out the cold air we currently have and replace it with milder air as soon as Friday morning.

In fact, a little rain could mix with snow Friday morning in and around south-central Montana, including the city of Billings.

Then the mild air moves in and warms us up into the 40s by Friday afternoon.

A fresh batch of moisture will move into the Beartooth, Absaroka and Gallatin mountain ranges Saturday morning.

This next batch of moisture then moves to the east, and it might actually producing spotty rain showers early Saturday afternoon in Billings. Then sunny skies return after that.


Tonight: Mostly cloudy with patchy fog. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 22 degrees.

Friday: Mostly sunny and warmer with patchy early morning fog. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph. High 43 degrees.

Saturday: Partly sunny with a 30 percent chance for morning snow showers then isolated rain in the afternoon. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph. High 41 degrees.
