BILLINGS — Good morning!
High pressure delivers dry and calm conditions through Tuesday, but winds could gust over 20 mph in Billings with over 35 mph gusts along the foothills (up to 50 mph on Tuesday). Warmer air aloft will help keep daytime temperatures a good 10 to 15 degrees above the norm through tomorrow with highs reaching the mid 50s if not higher. We could approach the record high on Tuesday of 61 in 1962. Overnight lows look to stay just above freezing.
An approaching cold front will bring rain or a rain/snow mix to western Montana as early as tomorrow morning. The front will push in a chance for snow or a wintry mix for our area late Tuesday night before transitioning to snow showers Wednesday morning. Less than half an inch accumulation is expected. This will also bring temperatures back to down to around seasonal Wednesday and Thursday.
The cold front moves through on Wednesday making for a dry day on Thursday before a second cold front begins to slide through Thursday night into Friday bringing more chances for snow and much colder temperatures.
