BILLINGS — Headlines/Current Conditions (As of 2:15 pm Tuesday)

Temps are in the low 40s right now here in Billings, with light wind and rain that is starting to move out of the area.

There are still a few Winter Weather Advisories and a Winter Storm Warning in effect until late Tuesday night and into early Wednesday morning.

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect until 6 p.m. for the Bighorn and Pryor Mountains, Red Lodge and Sheridan, Wyoming. Could see an additional inch of snow in certain areas. Travel could be difficult, especially along Highway 14 in the Bighorns. Please take a little extra caution if traveling in these areas.

Winter Storm Warning is in effect till midnight Wednesday night along the Wyoming-South Dakota border in the Black Hills. Heavy and wet snow is possible, 6 to 8 inches of additional accumulations. Please be careful driving in this area.

Tonight:

Partly cloudy. Temps in the low to mid 30s.

Tomorrow (Wednesday):

Temps will be pleasant. Sunny, with temperatures in the mid 60s.

Thursday - Tuesday:

Thursday, another small cool front moves in bringing precipitation, a 50% chance of rain in the low-lying areas and potentially snow in the mountains again. Temps will be in the upper 50s and low 60s for most, which is just above average for this time of year. We could see winds gusting west of the city in the foothills up to about 40 mph.

By Friday and the weekend, the sun comes back and though there might be a stray rain shower or two over the weekend, we are looking at temps in the 50s and 60s. Sunday may be the coolest day, however, with temps only getting only into the high 40s.
