BILLINGS – As the week goes on, some pretty nice fall weather is ahead.

Monday morning temperatures broke record lows in several locations in eastern Montana and northern Wyoming. Where the temperatures were not as cold, the wind tended to be stronger.

Breezy 15 to 25 mph winds will remain from Livingston to Harlowton and about as far east as Billings for Monday afternoon.  Expect a mostly sunny day with high temperatures in the 50s. Only the 40s Monday for higher elevations and much of northern Wyoming.

Not as cold overnight, and the wind eases up.  Partly to mostly clear with lows in the upper 20s and 30s.

Tuesday, highs temperatures look to be in the mid-50s to low-60s with plenty of sun.

Wednesday and Thursday, dry and sunny conditions will boost readings to above seasonal averages, with highs mainly in the 60s.

We could see a slight downturn in temperatures Friday, but conditions remain fairly dry.
