BILLINGS — Showers continue through the work week.

A chance of rain and snow showers pops up every day through at least Friday with much of the areas receiving a quarter-inch to one inch in total precipitation. High elevations could pick up 1 to 2 feet of snow.

Highs Tuesday stay below seasonal averages but warmer than Monday with highs in the 40s to mid-50s. After morning showers, much of the area will see a lull before afternoon and evening showers re-develop.

Isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms are possible, especially in southeast Montana and Northern Wyoming.

Some clearing Wednesday will allow temperatures to move from the 30s and low 40s in the morning to 55 to 65 in the afternoon. Again, showers and thunderstorms are possible by later in the day and thunderstorms look to be more widespread. Severe damaging storms do not look likely but wind and pockets of heavier rain are possible.

Some showers or thunderstorms are possible through Saturday with Friday looking cooler and wetter in general. Warmer and drier days follow on Sunday through Tuesday.

Billings forecast:

Tuesday… Morning rain/snow showers are possible, then rain showers likely by afternoon. Areas of morning fog. Otherwise mostly cloudy with a high of about 53.

Tuesday night… Showers during the evening and mostly cloudy overnight. Low around 43.

Wednesday… Increasing clouds with an increasing chance of rain or possibly a thunderstorm during the afternoon and evening. Near 64 for the high.
