BILLINGS — Saturday returns to the warmer and windy pattern we have seen so frequently this winter season. Gusts are back up to 60+ mph in the mountain foothills and breezy to windy across the plains as highs reach the upper 40s and 50s.

A cold front arrives Sunday with the warmest readings occurring through midday. Temperatures will drop and precipitation kicks in. Some areas may see rain briefly or snow melting and re-freezing causing ice to form under snow.

Accumulating snow is expected Sunday night through Monday. Some areas could see a foot of snow under heavier bands. Current estimates for Billings fall between 5 to 9 inches, but that could change.

Snow turns light and powdery starting Monday as temperatures drop to single-digit highs and lows are expected to reach the teens below zero Wednesday morning.
