BILLINGS – A slick start Thursday with chilly temperatures remaining through early next week.

It will be easy to find slick spots on roads and sidewalks Thursday morning, so allow extra time to get to work or school.  Drive with caution.

Highs temperatures will stay in the 30s to around 40 degrees Thursday through Monday.  While it will be warm enough to melt snow Thursday afternoon, increasing west winds will make it feel cold all day.

Some 40 mph gusts are possible around Livingston on Thursday afternoon.

A reinforcing shot of cold air Thursday afternoon and evening will drive Friday morning temperatures back down to the single digits and teens.

Overall, Friday and Saturday will warm up a few degrees more than Thursday with some low 40s within reach.  A series of disturbances will keep us watching for rain and snow showers through the weekend.

A warm-up is on track for early next week.
