BILLINGS — Good morning!

After a blustery Tuesday that saw winds gusting to near 60 mph at times, we’ll get a bit of a break today although it will remain quite breezy with winds clocking in between 15-25 mph.

High pressure will ensure dry conditions across the area through Friday before another cold front moves in from the west and injects a chance of snow back into the forecast for the weekend. Models disagree a bit as to the likelihood of snow with the Euro model being a bit more aggressive especially for the latter part of the weekend. Still, only going with a 20-30% chance for now.

In terms of temperatures, it will be a return to near seasonal today with highs in the mid 30s with wind chills not getting out of the 20s, but overnight lows will remain almost 10 degrees above the norm. By Thursday, afternoon temperatures will warm into the mid 40s before that next cold front cools us down into the low 40s on Saturday, upper 30s on Sunday and mid 30s the first part of next week. Overnight lows will remain around the mid to 20s (several degrees above average) over the next few nights.
