BILLINGS — Good morning!
We are coming off record snowfall Friday (5.2”) and Saturday (6.7") and flow out of the northwest will continue to pump moisture into the region, so chances for on and off snow will remain over the next several days, but the deepening cold air will limit this to just daily light flurries and minimal accumulations.
The big threat this week will be the extreme cold. Temperatures didn’t get over zero Sunday and look to be in the minus category through at least Friday. We will likely see record low daytime highs Tuesday through Friday and maybe one or two nights of record cold lows.
Wind chills will hover around -30 through mid-week before dipping to near -40 Thursday through Saturday. Stay indoors as much as possible. Bring in pets, plants and insulate pipes.
If you do venture out, bundle up! Wear layers of warm, loose-fitting clothing, mittens, and don’t forget a hat. Make sure you have a car safety kit including blankets, food, water, jumper cables, flashlight, extra batteries, etc. Also, share your route with family and friends and charge up your cell phone.
