BILLINGS- We have already seen showers here in the Billings area Monday afternoon and have benefitted from being on the warm side of an approaching cold front.

High temperatures Monday will stick in the middle 40s for much of the southern portion of the state, but that cold air is pushing toward Billings.

By Monday evening, we will notice a distinct cool-down, and we can look to the Hi-Line in the afternoon and see temperatures below the freezing point to get a sense of how much temperatures will drop.

Temperatures Tuesday will be right around the freezing mark, and overnight temperatures should drop well below freezing.

This means that the snow expected in the late evening to overnight hours should stick around to make the morning commute more wintry than we have seen this season.

Higher elevations will see more snow, specifically west/northwest facing peaks and passes, so anyone heading that way should be advised that a winter weather advisory is in place starting this Monday evening into Tuesday morning.

Cold temperatures stick around the rest of the week, but we should see skies clearing heading into next weekend.
