We have seen snow showers dancing around the area for much of the day here on Sunday but nothing measurable has fallen in the city of Billings. There has been more activity in the foothills regions and that will likely continue into the evening hours.

As the evening goes along things will begin to clear. Those clearer skies along with the push of cold air we have seen mean things will have the opportunity to cool significantly overnight. Winds out of the Northwest will persist and wind chill values in the early morning hours will get down to around the zero degree mark in many places.

In areas that have received more snow, road conditions could be hazardous.

Monday morning will likely bring sunshine, but the warm temperatures will lag behind the bright skies. Afternoon high temperatures Monday will stay in the 20s and 30s as we recover from the frigid overnight lows.

On Tuesday we will notice a decided shift in the temperatures in the positive direction. A wind shift to chinook winds combined with persistent sunshine will aid in the warmup. Afternoon high temperatures could get into the upper 40s.

Wednesday is looking like the warmest day of the week.

The cold front initially forecast for Thursday now appears to be dropping in later in the day on Friday, which means pleasant fall conditions will be around throughout the work week.
