BILLINGS- Those mostly sunny skies are finally starting to warm things up around Montana, including Billings, on Friday.
The temps have already risen into the mid-30, and are expected to go higher before the day is done.
Once again, it was a very cold start across the state. Several places had double digits below zero, including Jordan, Miles City and Butte.
In the Billings area we h,ad an overnight low of 11 degrees above zero, which did help us to warm up into the 30s.
The Doppler radar and satellite imagery was almost a carbon copy of Thursday’s satellite imagery.
Again, mostly clear skies were across much of the state with a few wispy high clouds on the corners of Montana.
The forecast is very pretty simple for the next few days. Mostly sunny skies should prevail with warmer temps moving into central Montana, kicking the colder temps into the Dakotas.
Though we are expecting the temperatures to drop Friday night, they should stay into the 20s and then bounce back up into the 40s over the weekend.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear, breezy and warmer area and Southwest winds 15 to 25 mph. Low 20 degrees.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny, breezy and warmer still. Southwest winds 15 to 25 mph. High 41 degrees.
SUNDAY: Mostly sunny, not as windy but still warm. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph. High 43 degrees.
