BILLINGS- We had managed to get a few sun breaks in the cloud cover in Billings Wednesday afternoon and with that, temperatures have actually popped up into the low 30s.

Elsewhere around the state, temperatures are mostly into the teens and 20s, but we do see a few places like Sheridan and Kalispell, just like Billings, in the low 30s.

The Doppler radar shows a few flurries, which we promised yesterday, developing around Great Falls, Glasgow and east of Billings heading into Big Horn County.

We don’t think these minor disturbances will last very long. In fact, they are in the process of breaking up.

These flurries will slide to the south and east of Montana over the next few hours. They are not very strong and a new area of high pressure will be building in behind them.

The Billings area will probably still remain cool throughout the rest of the day on Wednesday and part of Thursday. However, by Friday, sunshine and warmer temperature should be moving in from the west.

Temperatures will probably be cooling back down to the single digits in a morning and back up to 27 degrees by the afternoon on Thursday.

Billings will actually top out at 29 degrees on Thursday and then the temperatures will continue to rise into the 40s through the weekend and on into the early part of next week.


TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and colder. East winds 5 to 10 mph. Low 8 degrees.

THURSDAY: Sunny and still chilly. South winds 5 to 15 mph. High 29 degrees.

FRIDAY: Sunny and warmer. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph. High 36 degrees.
