BILLINGS – It will feel more like winter Thursday, but it will not be harsh.

For Thursday morning, areas of dense fog and drizzle, especially north and east of Billings, will cause concerns for morning travel.

A cold front dropping from north to south will limit any kind of afternoon warm up, with most highs staying in the 20s to mid-30s. Average this time of the year is mid-30s.

As moisture runs over the top of the colder air, it will produce snow showers. Areas north of Billings will be the most likely to receive an inch or two of accumulation.

Winds will increase a bit down the mountain slopes west of Billings for Friday. This will allow drier and warmer conditions to start the weekend.

A series of disturbances bring a chance of rain and snow showers by late Sunday and off-and-on next week.
