BILLINGS — Good morning!
We could be waking up to light freezing drizzle, flurries and even some patchy dense fog, so please use caution during your commute this morning. Hopefully, there won't be much of any of this and impacts will be minor.
The colder air brought in by the southeast winds continues to hang on today, so if there's any moisture still available to tap into, we could see snow showers here in Billings this morning through the afternoon. If it does snow, little to no accumulation is expected. Today’s high will top out in the upper 20s to low 30s.
A change in wind direction arrives on Wednesday, so another warm-up enters the forecast period. Southwest flow will push daytime temperatures near 40 Wednesday, mid 40s Thursday, and mid to upper 40s by Friday. Conditions should also be mainly dry during this stretch except for west and southwest facing slopes which could still receive daily snow showers through Friday if ample moisture hangs on.
Models are trying to push another blast of quick energy to our south Friday into Saturday. This could kick up rain and even snow showers Friday night into Saturday depending on the timing of that system as it moves through. It looks to roll through rather quickly allowing for a return to drier conditions Sunday into Monday.
