BILLINGS — The pendulum swings both ways in the next seven days. We go from well above average temperatures and isolated spring storms to a good chance of rain and snow as things cool down midweek.

Weekend temperatures will be above seasonal averages. Lows will be in the 30s to mid-40s. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 60s to upper 70s.

A high-pressure ridge will bring generally dry conditions, but a chance of a stray shower or thunderstorm pops up each afternoon. Isolated storms could have heavy rain or wind Friday, Saturday or Sunday afternoons.

A low-pressure trough moves in early next week, creating the environment for rain and snow showers. By around Wednesday, temperatures will be only in the 30s to mid-40s for the highs with lows in the 20s and 30s.

There is a decent chance we could see some light accumulating snow even in the lower elevations, especially from late Tuesday through Wednesday. The Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows a high probability of cooler-than-average temperatures next week and is leaning toward wetter-than-average conditions.
