The week starts with a break from the cold and rain and snow. But it does not end that way.

Warmer temperatures and more settled weather will start the work week, with temperatures Monday mainly in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

By Tuesday, highs will move into the upper 50s to mid 60s with a few locations in northern Wyoming potentially reaching the upper 60s.

Expect some breezy periods Monday especially from Livingston toward Billings.

The weather is showing signs of turning colder and wetter later in the week. The best chance of getting rain and snow accumulation at this point appears to be from Billings to the east starting Wednesday night through Thursday.

Temperatures will trend cooler by the end of the week, slipping back to the 40s for the highs by Thursday and Friday.

There are still a lot of variables in the weather pattern by the end of the week. Keep watching for updates on the forecast.

Billings forecast:

Monday… Isolated morning showers and patchy fog. Then mostly sunny in the afternoon with a high near 53. Winds increase from the West 25 to 15 mph.

Monday night… Partly cloudy with a low of about 32.

Tuesday… Mostly sunny and around 62 for the high temperature.
