It is a fairly fast moving winter-type storm that is currently moving through Montana tonight. This storm is very juicy, and has copious amounts of moisture. We say moisture, because it started out as rain and turned into Snow, between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Here are some of the rainfall totals before the rain changed over to Snow. At 10:00 PM Monday, the temperature was 32 degrees in Billings. That temperature is crucial, if it stays there all night then we may see self shoveling snow. The 3 to 4 inches of snow we are expecting, will only be on the grassy areas. The computer models show this storm will drop into Wyoming around 5AM tomorrow morning. The same computer shows the temps should drop to 30 degrees tomorrow morning. If that is, in deed, the case we could see 3 to 4 inches of snow in Billings. Temperatures are expected to warm up again tomorrow afternoon. Once that happens, all that new snow will melt and again and flood our streams and creeks with more water. Tonight: Cloudy and colder with more snow likely, around 4 inches. Low 30. Tuesday: 20% chance of morning snow, then sunny skies later. High 42. Wednesday: Sunny, dry a nd warmer. High 51.
