The chance of rain goes down, smoke decreases, and temperatures will warm.

Rain will decrease in the lower elevations through Tuesday morning.  A chance of a shower or thunderstorm will linger in the mountains throughout the day.

Overall, temperatures will be warmer than Monday but stay in the 60s to low 70s Tuesday afternoon.  Breaks of afternoon sun will signal clearing overnight.

Morning temperatures Wednesday will be cool, with lows in the 40s to low 50s.  The afternoon shoots up to the upper 70s to low 80s.

There is some uncertainty in the forecast later in the week.  But the trend seems to be toward an overall dry pattern with highs in the mid-80s. That is average for this time in August.

Billings forecast:

Tuesday…Morning showers around then breaks of sunshine in the afternoon.  High of about 65.

Tuesday night…Partly cloudy and near 51 for a low.

Wednesday…Mostly sunny to sunny with a high around 82.  Light wind.
