BILLINGS- The sun is coming out, and the weather is finally starting to clear up.

In fact, the only issues around the state are a few isolated showers in northwest Montana. That is according to our thunderstorm outlook Wednesday.

The storm that brought snow on Tuesday has finally moved out of Wyoming and into the central plains.

The wraparound moisture from that low-pressure cell now can’t reach Montana and is pushing its way into the Dakotas.

A new system is starting to make its way to the northwest corner the state Wednesday It’s bringing only isolated rain showers and a couple snow flurries.

That system will move a little bit farther into Montana on Thursday and bring a surface trough into the Billings area.

Around that surface trough, we might see a few isolated showers and thunderstorms develop Thursday evening. None of these thunderstorms are expected to be severe.

Eventually all that moisture will move on and Friday should be sunny and beautiful with temperatures getting into the low to mid 60s.


TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and mild. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph. Low 34 degrees.

THURSDAY: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for showers and an afternoon thunderstorm. West winds 10 to 20 mph. High 58 degrees.

FRIDAY: Mostly sunny and warmer. West winds 5 to 15 mph. High 64 degrees.
