It is still going to be a very nice fall day on Tuesday, but there are little signs that our consistently sunny, warm and dry afternoons will be changing.
Tuesday, the western U.S. is still under a big area of high pressure. That will keep the sky mostly sunny, and nudge afternoon highs to the upper 50s to mid-60s.
Tuesday afternoon and evening, southeastern Montana will pick up some gusty afternoon winds east of Billings. And there is a chance of higher elevation rain or snow showers in the Beartooths, Absarokas, and Big Horn mountains.
Wednesday will be warmer but breezy. Highs will hit the mid-60s to low 70s, and dry weather for the lower elevations continues.
For Thursday and beyond, expect a gradual decrease in the afternoon highs with a few stray showers possible. It could also turn breezy from time to time.
By the weekend, high temperatures will be in the upper 50s. Based on the 30-year average, that is typical for late October.
