BILLINGS – We get a one-two punch of wind and precipitation.

Wednesday, clouds will increase through the day.  Mountain snow and a chance of rain for the plains will pick up by late afternoon.

Winds will increase in the usual windy locations in the mountain foothills, and it will be breezy as far east as Billings.  Gusts around Livingston could reach 45 mph.

Wednesday evening, a weak cold front will move across the area.  Winds will decrease, but rain showers will spread eastward.

Thursday, drier air moves in briefly.  High temperatures both Wednesday and Thursday will be in the upper 40s to mid-50s.

Another wave moves from the Pacific Northwest late Thursday.  This will produce more wind and rain Friday, but with slight warmer temperatures.
