BILLINGS — Good morning and Brrr!
A dangerously cold air mass continues to dig in across the region and we’re only getting colder. Record cold temperatures are possible (if not likely) over the next few days during the afternoon as well as a few nights.
Daytime highs will stall in the single digits below zero through Wednesday before dipping to the teens below zero Thursday and Friday. Overnight lows will push near -20. Winds chills will plummet to near -35 tonight and Wednesday night then to near -40 Thursday through Saturday nights. The Wind Chill Advisory has been extended through Thursday for now, but is expected to be needed through the early part of the weekend.
Daytime highs will try to push into the plus side of zero by Sunday, but still be well below seasonal temperatures.
There remains enough moisture aloft to allow for flurries and possibly light snow on and off today through Wednesday. The chance for more modest snowfall kicks up a notch late Wednesday night into Thursday with the introduction of more moisture. South and west areas of Billings could pick up an inch of snow.
