Cloud cover over the course of the day here on Sunday has capped our warm-up a little lower than we were hoping for, and the breezy winds have been as advertised, which has kept feels like temperatures below the freezing mark once again.

There have been some scattered snow showers in the area, mainly affecting northeast Montana, but relatively little in terms of accumulating snow.

These showers could continue this evening, popped up by a cold front  approaching that northeast corner of the state. We could see a flurry or two later in the evening here in Billings, but again, I would not bet on any type of accumulation.

The system pushes out of the state rather quickly and skies begin to clear on Monday morning, and will continue to do so over the day on Monday.

Afternoon highs on Monday should get into the mid to upper 40s and we will once again notice some breezy winds out of the west-southwest.

By Tuesday things should be clearer and calmer and temperatures could approach the 50 degree mark.

The pleasant pattern is forecast to hold through Thanksgiving, before things cool off next weekend.
