BILLINGS- While the rest of America returns back to work on Tuesday, the weather in Billings seems to be almost perfect, although it may be cool for some folks, at least it’s not unseasonably hot.

Temps in the early afternoon were only in the mid 60s.

The Doppler radar and Satellite imagery shows only a few clouds in north-central Montana on Tuesday.

This is caused by a little dip in the jet stream that is allowing some cooler air to move into Montana from southern Canada. This will keep us fairly cool for the rest of Tuesday.

High pressure moving into the west will continue to create a northeasterly flow of cooler Canadian air into south-central Montana.

However, warmer temperatures are expected to start moving into Montana from the southwest Wednesday afternoon. They should put us on track to getting back up into the 80s.

The temperature is expected to cool down to close to 50 in the morning, then bounce back up into the 60s by midday and top out into the 80s later Wednesday.

By Friday, Billings will see temperatures flirt with 90 degrees, then drop back down to the 70s as we start next week.


TONIGHT: Mostly clear and continued cool Northeast winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 46 degrees.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and warmer. East winds 5 to 15 mph. High 80 degrees.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and continued warm. West winds 5 to 10 mph the morning becoming northeasterly in the afternoon. High 85 degrees.
