BILLINGS – We are not quite done with strong to severe storms yet.

Tuesday is shaping up to be another day with the potential for strong winds and large hail with area thunderstorms. More storms will develop the next couple of days, but with less chance of becoming severe.

Temperatures will be hard to forecast, with variable cloudiness and the chance of showers or thunderstorms through the day. Highs will range mainly in the low 70s to low 80s.

A combination of plentiful moisture, instability in the atmosphere, and a cold front acting as a trigger will bring the best chance of storms two areas along and south of Interstate 94.

Cooler than average temperatures continue through at least Friday, with afternoon readings in the 60s to mid-70s on Wednesday and for Independence Day. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue

The overall outlook is a little warmer with isolated storms starting Saturday.

Billings forecast:

Tuesday… A mix of clouds and sun early was showers and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon and evening. High temperatures looked to be in the mid-70s.

Tuesday night… Showers and thunderstorms likely during the evening. Mostly cloudy overnight with a low around 58.

Wednesday… A mix of clouds and sun, with showers and thunderstorms likely especially in the afternoon once again. Near 70 for a high.
