BILLINGS — Showers and thunderstorms keep popping up, with the warm temperatures and river levels highlight the weather once again.

A series of weak disturbances will keep a chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms going on Wednesday and Thursday. Most of the activity will be in the higher elevations, and will develop from Billings southward through northern Wyoming.

A few storms will ripple down to the plains during each afternoon and evening.

Highs Wednesday will be mainly in the upper 70s to mid 80s, and mainly the 70s on Thursday. Expect a mix of clouds and sun and generally a light wind.

Friday and Saturday promise to be the warmest days, with highs in the 80s and overnight temperatures in the 50s to low 60s. Temperatures slip to the 60s early next week with scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Mountain snow melt is keeping the rivers running high, cold and fast. A number of flood warnings are currently in place along Yellowstone River and the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone.

Billings forecast:

Wednesday… Partly to mostly sunny with a high near 83. Light breeze 5 to 15 mph.

Wednesday night… Isolated afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms with a low around 55.

Thursday… Mostly sunny with a high of about 78. Isolated afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.
