BILLINGS- Tuesday is shaping up to be the warmest day for a while, with a better chance of rain to follow.

Expect Tuesday afternoon highs to reach the mid-to-lower 70s with variable clouds and little breezy at times.  Mild overnight temperatures only slip to the mid-40s to low 50s.

A disturbance on Wednesday will create a few showers and isolated thunderstorms, and cool high temperatures to the mid-to-upper 60s.  That is still warmer than the late April average.

Conditions remain somewhat unsettled with hit-and-miss showers and thunderstorms possible each through the weekend. The best chance of rain comes together on Friday, but again is shows and a few thunderstorms.

While a lot of uncertainty remains, the trend is leaning toward a cooler and somewhat wetter pattern next week.

Billings forecast

Tuesday… Partly Sunny with a high near 74. West wind 10-20 mph.

Tuesday night… Mostly cloudy with a low of around 49.

Wednesday… Partly sunny early with a chance of mainly afternoon showers. Winds increasing to 15 to 25 mph in the afternoon.  High near 69.
