BILILNGS — The strongest wind gusts are starting to taper off in eastern Montana, but the mountain foothills will have some wind redevelop.

Dry conditions Thursday night and most of Friday can be expected in southern Montana and northern Wyoming. With the clearing sky, lows will drop to the teens to low 20s.

Winds will increase around Livingston/Nye/Big Timber and Harlowton to 40 to 50 mile-per-hour gusts. Some stronger gusts could develop through Friday evening.

High temperatures will be mainly in the 30s and eastern Montana, and 40s from Billings to the west Friday with mainly 40s across the area on Saturday.

Our next chance of showers is on Sunday, with some snow in the north facing terrain. That could be good news for Red Lodge Mountain.

Temperatures will slip a little early next week with highs in the 30s to low 40s. But noticeably colder air could push highs down to the 20s next weekend.

Billings forecast:

Thursday night… Mostly clear with a low around 23. Winds decrease through the evening.

Friday… Mostly sunny with a high close to 46. Southwest wind 10 to 20 mph.

Friday night through Sunday. Lows mainly in the 20s to low 30s and highs mainly in the mid 40s. Mostly sunny during the day but increasing clouds with an increasing chance of showers Sunday afternoon.
