Some showers around in the next couple of days and increasing wind. In other words, it is feeling more like spring!
Our warming trend will continue over the next couple of days with a bit of a setback this weekend. Highs Thursday will be mainly the 40s from around Billings to the west and across Northern Wyoming. Expect the mid-to-upper 30s across Eastern Montana.
For Friday, the warm up continues with more of the region hitting the 40s and even some low 50s in the mountain foothills. With increasing snow melt, watch rivers for ice jams and localized ponding of water.
The winds will be breezy in the Livingston area on Thursday, and increase Friday. Gusts will start to reach over 50 mph along I-90 around Livingston, and the winds around Billings increase to 15 to 25 mph Friday.
Friday night through Saturday morning, rain and snow showers develop and could throw down a quick couple of inches of fresh snow in a few areas. Roads could be slick in some places.
Temperatures retreat to the 30s and low 40s for the weekend. An overall warm up follows next week with the warmest readings much of the area has seen so far in 2018.
