BILLINGS — It is another beautiful day in Billings, Montana. The sun is out, the temps are up in the 80s already and the rain remains jammed up in the northern part of the state.

Around the rest of Montana, we see temps in the 60s and 70s along the high line in the early afternoon. We see generally mostly 80s in the southern part of the state.

However, the Thunderstorm outlook shows we have a chance of thunderstorms across most of Northern Montana and down the eastern side. A few of these storms could go severe Sunday afternoon.

The Doppler Radar shows we already have some rain developing in Northern Montana and around the Black Hills of South Dakota and the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming.

The High-Resolution computer models show most of the rain will stay way to the north of Billings on Sunday and most of Monday,

However, we do have a 20 percent chance of rain in Billings on Monday night. These will be widely scattered and in kind of a hit or miss pattern.

Our temperatures are expected to stay in the 80s for the rest of Sunday and drop into the 60s Monday morning, only to climb up again into the 90s for highs on Monday.

In fact, the high will be 92 degrees on Monday. Then drop down to 80 degrees on Tuesday after a cold front passes.

We will zoom up to 90 degrees on Wednesday only to cool down to the 70s by next Saturday.


TONIGHT: Turning cloudy and mild. Northeast winds 5 -15 mph shifting to the Northwest overnight. Low 62 degrees.

MONDAY: Mostly sunny and hot with a 20 percent chance of rain that night. Southwest wind 5-15 mph in the morning shifting to the North 10-20 mph in the afternoon. High 92 degrees.
