BILLINGS – After last week’s cool temperatures, wind, and snow, this week will feel more like summer.

Monday afternoon high temperatures will still be cooler than seasonal averages, ranging mainly from the mid-60s to mid-70s. Expect a mix of clouds and sun with a few scattered to isolated showers.

By Tuesday, morning readings will be mainly in the 40s with some patchy morning fog. By the afternoon highs in the 70s to about 80. That is pretty close to the seasonal normal. Expect a sunny to partly sunny afternoon with isolated late day showers or thunderstorms.

Temperatures continue to climb, hitting the mid-80s on Wednesday and in the upper 80s to about 90 by Thursday. The amount of available moisture will increase.

Late day showers and thunderstorms will be very hit and miss, but any developing storms do the potential for some heavy rain.

Monday… Partly to mostly sunny, with scattered to isolated showers and thunderstorms. A high near 76. West wind 10 to 20 mph.

Monday night… Partly cloudy with a low around 50. Light and variable breeze.
