We saw the push of Pacific moisture roll through the area this morning bringing us some light showers. Most of that moisture is now moving out of the region to the east but it is still unsettled in the wake of the passage of this system.

We will see another wave push into the region overnight and into Monday, but as of now it appears to be setting up to drop snow into the mountain regions and push into the foothills.

This pattern appears to leave Billings just slightly to the northwest of the majority of moisture, however there is still the slight chance of some shower activity Monday afternoon.

Conditions Monday will remain mostly cloudy with temperatures dropping thanks to a cooler air mass in the wake of the cold frontal passage. Afternoon highs for Monday afternoon will be in the mid 40s.

We can also expect fairly breezy conditions across the eastern portion of the state tomorrow afternoon.

Scattered chances of precipitation remain into the middle of the week and a big push of cold Canadian air is heading our way by Tuesday and Wednesday.
