BILLINGS- Mostly cloudy skies on tap for the rest of Monday, but we could see a few sun breaks in the afternoon. We had a number waves move through the state this morning and the clouds are the only thing left from that.
The temperature in Billings in the early afternoon is still a comfortable 55 degrees,but we see 60s up along the Hi-Line.
The only issue we have on the threat board is a Flood Advisory in Meagher County on the Smith River by White Sulphur Springs. This is caused by rapid snowmelt there.
The Doppler Radar and Satellite show only a few clouds left over south-central Montana today. Those are expected to clear out Monday night and make way for sunshine and warmer temps, thanks to a new Upper Ridge building into the region.
The forecast model shows sunny skies on Tuesday with the next batch of moisture moving in on Wednesday. Temps could get to the low 60s later today then top out in the 70s for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low around 44. Southwest wind 6 to 13 mph
Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 75. West wind 11 to 13 mph.
Tuesday Night: A 20 percent chance of rain after midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 50. West wind 6 to 11 mph.
Wednesday: A 40 percent chance of showers, mainly after noon. Partly sunny, with a high near 70. West wind 6 to 13 mph.
