BILLINGS — Good morning.
We hit a record low high yesterday of -3° and we have a great shot of doing it again today. The bitter cold temperatures continue to be the weather story through the weekend. High pressure to our north will help intensify the cold air coming in, meaning we haven't seen the coldest temperatures yet.
The arctic air will dig in even deeper for the next couple of days with daytime highs possibly in the teens below zero and overnight lows dipping to 20° below or more. Much of the area remains under a Wind Chill Advisory as some spots could possibly see upwards of 40° below over the next couple of evenings. Daytime highs will attempt to crack 0° as early as Sunday, starting a warming trend that could push us back over the freezing mark by the middle of next week.
Divergence aloft will allow for flurries to snow showers this morning with less than half an inch of accumulation possible. A second round of snow showers could add an additional 1-2" on Friday.
