BILLINGS- The chance of snow does not disappear from this point, but the focus will be more on spring rain.

After a few mountain showers taper off Friday evening, expect a chilly start Saturday.  Lows will be mainly in the 20s.

Saturday looks sunny and dry, with highs mainly in the mid to upper 50s. Winds will be light, with the exception of some areas in the mountain foothills.

By Sunday, the clouds increase but the temperatures still top off mainly in the 50s out ahead of a cold front. By Sunday afternoon and evening, winds could be gusty at times in the Livingston/Big Timber area with a chance of showers increasing Sunday afternoon and evening across much of the area.

Next week looks unsettled with the chance of off and on showers, but temperatures remain close to seasonal averages with highs mainly in the 50s and lows mainly in the 30s.

The best chance of rain looks to be around a more organized weather system Tuesday and Wednesday. If the current trend holds, next weekend should be warmer and drying out.

Billings forecast

Friday night… Partly cloudy with a low near 28. A light invariable wind.

Saturday… Sunny and warmer with a high around 59.

Sunday… Temperatures in the 30s in the morning and the upper 50s in the afternoon. Clouds increase with scattered showers.
