After a few flurries this morning, conditions will be dry and quiet today for Billings, but gusts up to 60 mph will continue from Livingston to Nye up to Harlowton. This could cause blowing snow where the stronger winds occur. Crust could help limit that. Just be prepared for reduced visibility and snow drifts on roads if you plan to travel west of Billings. Gusts will lessen tonight as the pressure gradients ease up.
Winds will still be a concern this weekend as gusts could top 50 mph along the foothills from time to time. Gusts will increase to 65+ mph Sunday night into Monday from Livingston to Big Timber to Harlowton. For Billings, gusts to 45 mph will be possible.
Temperatures will make it into the upper 30s today and Saturday then hit the 40s on Sunday and into the first part of next week. Weekend lows will be in the 20s then the 30s early next week. A cold front moves through Tuesday and will cool daytime highs back down into the 30s on Wednesday. May even see some rain to snow in the lower elevations.
