BILLINGS — Wednesday high temperatures are a little cooler than average, but a warm up continues through Friday. Afternoon highs will climb to mainly the 60s Thursday and more upper 60s to low 70s reachable by Friday.
Fair weather will stick around through the weekend with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s. A trough moving into the Pacific Northwest by Sunday evening into Monday morning will bring moisture to the area. That will increase the chance of rain and snow near the mountains west of Billings.
A few showers are possible next week, and it could be a little windy at times. Forecast details by the middle of next week are still unclear.
