Q2 Weather: We have kicked the coldest air to the curb

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The cold, cloudy and foggy weather pattern we’ve had for the past few days has finally moved out of Billings.

The temperatures warmed up into the 30s across much of eastern Montana and that makes a lot of sense. Because that’s where the sun is today.

The Doppler Radar and Satellite imagery shows generally sunny skies across most of eastern Montana. In fact, if you are east of the divide you’ve got plenty of sunshine.

Our next weather disturbance is out in west-central Montana where it’s producing rain and snow showers around the city of Missoula.

A low pressure cell in western Montana is drawing a fresh batch of moisture into it.

Out in the west, that moisture is turning into rain and snow showers Friday afternoon.

But that low pressure cell that’s drawing the moisture into it, is forecast to drop in the south-central Montana by Saturday morning.

Plus, at the same time, a new chunk of cold air is forecast to drop down out of Canada and cross into most of eastern Montana, including Billings.

The moisture will be overrunning the cold air and we expect snowfall up in the Beartooth and Absaroka Mountain Ranges early in the morning.

Some of that snow will be making its way into the rest of south-central Montana including Billings.

However, that low is on its way to the Nebraska Panhandle, taking all that rain and snow along with it.

That leaves the door wide open for warmer temperatures and sunny skies for the rest of Saturday afternoon.

On Sunday, a new warm front sweeps across eastern Montana continuing to cook us up and bring in some sunshine to the region.
