BILLINGS — Good morning!
There is still a very slight chance we could see some early flurries in Billings, but that chance will taper off as we warm into the 40s this afternoon when an isolated rain shower or two is not out of the question. Southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming holds on to a better chance of flurries this afternoon.
Northwesterly winds will bring dry conditions Tuesday through Thursday. A fall in pressure will inject stronger winds on Tuesday with gusts up to 40 mph possible here in Billings. Stronger gusts near 60 mph are more likely from Big Timber to Harlowton especially late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Winds will ease as we get into Thursday.
Keeping an eye on an area of low pressure expected to develop off the Pacific coast that could, combined with colder air moving in from Canada, provide us with a decent chance for snow as early as Thursday night. Depending on how this combination comes together, we could see a chance of snow stretch all the way through Saturday.
Temperatures will continue to stay above average with highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s and 30s through Thursday. The aforementioned colder from Canada will change things Friday into the weekend. Expecting daytime highs to stay below freezing with overnight lows in the 10s and 20s with possible single digits on Sunday morning.
