A Pacific cold front will move through the area from west to east today. This will create scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms as this system moves through. Gusty west to northwest winds will develop behind the system this afternoon and will continue into this evening, blowing at about 15 to 25 mph. The sky will begin to clear behind the front, which should reach Billings about the middle of the day, and move out of Eastern Montana during the afternoon and evening. A warming trend is expected through Tuesday with highs in the 60s and 70s. Saturday looks beautiful, with sunshine, light winds, and 60+ degree temperatures. This warm period will lead to some rising water levels on area rivers and streams. Additionally, a storm system will begin moving toward the region late Tuesday, and may spread rain over existing snow. This could lead to an additional increase in water levels on area streams and rivers. Billings Forecast: Today: A chance of showers as a front moves through.
