BILLINGS — TGIF!
Southwest flow will continue to keep daytime highs above average today, but a quick short wave will deliver a chance of rain tonight transitioning to snow overnight through Saturday morning. Expecting less than half an inch of accumulation.
High pressure takes over Sunday through Tuesday afternoon, keeping things dry with highs hitting the 50s to start the week.
Then comes the change.
Much colder air will blanket the area starting the middle of next week and could bring the coldest temperatures so far this winter which has been rather quiet to this point. Models agree that Billings could see 1-3” of snow Tuesday night into Wednesday as another cold front pushes through on Wednesday before becoming stationary to our east.
Thursday afternoon should be quiet, but that stationary boundary looks to back up across the area, so flurries are possible Thursday night.
Let’s talk temperatures:
Highs through Sunday will hover in the mid to upper 40s with lows in the mid 20s. Afternoon temperatures push into the low 50s Monday and Tuesday with nighttime lows in the 20s and 30s. Highs dip back to the 20s and 30s with lows in the teens and single digits the latter part of next week.
