BILLINGS – Yesterday, we said the forecast for snow was far from a slam dunk. Today, it looks like this one is bouncing off the rim.

For Wednesday, expect a mix of clouds and sun.  Despite areas of morning fog, highs are still on track for the upper 30s to mid-40s.

With increasing clouds, lows will drop to the teens and low 20s.

Thursday is still on track for colder temperatures and some snow, but the snow totals do not look significant.

For Billings, we may only be looking at a skiff to maybe 2 inches of accumulation Thursday night through Friday. There will be higher amounts in the mountain foothills and little if any snow in the eastern plains of Montana and much of northern Wyoming.

Highs Thursday will only be in the 20s to around 30 degrees.  As the cold air exits, and with a lack of significant fresh snow, temperatures will start to warm again each day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Another weather system Sunday and Monday bring more potential for snow, or possibly rain.
