Finally a break for those who want to work and play in the outdoors.

With Tuesday’s weather system pushing into the central plains, we are left with just a few showers in extreme Eastern Montana. Otherwise, Wednesday will be a dry and mainly sunny day with light winds and highs mainly in the mid to lower 50s.

As a ridge of high pressure brings warming and drying conditions, Thursday’s highs will move into the 50s to low 60s.

There is a disturbance south of our region which will build in a few clouds for Thursday and Friday. This could develop into a few scattered to isolated rain showers south and east of Billings.

Saturday looks to be the warmest day with highs in the 60s to low 70s lots of sunshine. Otherwise, expect this mix of clouds and sun and temperatures in the 50s to low 60s to continue through early next week.

Billings forecast:

Wednesday… Mainly sunny, with a high near 56. A light West wind shifts to the East in the afternoon.

Wednesday night… Partly cloudy with a low near 34.

Thursday… About 60 for a high and mostly sunny to partly sunny.
