BILLINGS – Temperatures back down significantly after Monday.

Low humidity, a wind blowing down the east mountain slopes, and a high-pressure ridge all combine to give us one more very warm day Monday.

Highs will generally be in the 80s, with a low 90 degree reading possible anywhere from Billings eastward.

A cold front moves across the area mainly overnight.  Conditions are dry enough that initially it will only cause some wind.

Afternoon high temperatures will drop about 10 to 15 degrees on Tuesday to mainly the 70s, and you can expect readings to stay about the same through Friday.

A few isolated storms could pop up later this week, especially closer to the mountains.

Billings forecast:

Monday… Sunny with a high near 87, West 5-15 mph.

Monday night… Mostly clear, and about 53 for a low.

Tuesday… Mostly sunny, but cooler.  High around 74. Variable wind 5 to 15 mph.
