A moisture-laden system pushed through the region last night, dropping snow over a wide area. As it happens that area was just outside the Billings region, which meant that here in the Magic City we woke up to a decidedly less white morning than we were expecting.
However the same cannot be said for those who woke up in Red Lodge, Livingston, or in the far western portions of the state.
Red Lodge mountain this morning reported 7 inches of new snow.
the system pushed through the day to bring snow to northern Wyoming as well, and warning remain up for the Red Lodge and Sheridan foothills through this evening fro another inch or two of accumulation.
This system is fairly quick moving and will allow more pleasant conditions to form in its wake. We will see clearer skies to start the new week on Sunday and afternoon highs will reach around the 40 degree mark.
Temperatures will continue to warm into the middle of the week. The next chance for some wintry precipitation will be Tuesday night into Wednesday, although percentages are still on the low side right now, around 30% POP.
Overall this week is setting up to be seasonal and relatively pleasant on the weather front.
