2 to 4 inches of accumulation will be widespread from Billings to Sheridan, Wyoming westward with heavier accumulations in the foothills and higher elevations of the mountains west of Billings and in the Big Horns.

Watch for the potential of melting on roadways and sidewalks Monday afternoon with refreezing by the evening commute.

The snow will end Monday evening through very early Tuesday from north to south. Lows will drop to the single digits above and below zero early Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the 20s to low 30s.
