BILLINGS — A deep area of low pressure will bring showers and thunderstorms to the area today. Not expecting any severe weather, but some isolated storms could turn strong with gusty winds, frequent lightning, and periods of heavy rain. Billings could pick up half an inch of rain through tomorrow morning. Localized flooding is possible in poor drainage areas.

This storm system will also bring cooler temperatures over the next several days.

A chance for showers and some thunderstorm activity will remain with us through the weekend.

Chances will lessen Monday and Tuesday ahead of what could be another storm system bringing a better chance of rain and thunderstorms Wednesday into Thursday.

The Beartooths, Absarokas, and Bighorns could pick up several inches of snow Friday through Tuesday.

With the warmer than average temperatures along with rain affecting snow melt this week, flood prone areas will need to monitor the possibility of faster flowing and rising streams and rivers.
