BILLINGS – Our weather pattern holds for one more day.  But changes are ahead for the weekend.

The jet stream remains directly above the area and maintains our cooler-than-average temperatures for one more day.

Highs will be in the 60s west and north of Billings; 70-75 along the jet, including Billings; and in the mid-70s to mid-80s to the south and east of Billings.

As our weather system finally shifts a bit Saturday, temperatures will warm. Highs will be around 80 in Billings, and warm as the low 90s in northern Wyoming.

However, the shift also brings a few isolated showers or thunderstorms today and tomorrow with some periods of wind possible Saturday.

Billings forecast:

Friday… Mostly sunny with isolated showers or thunderstorms.  High near 72.

Friday night… Partly cloudy with a low around 45.  Variable wind 5-15 mph.

Saturday… Mostly sunny with a high near 80.
