BILLINGS — Good morning!
High pressure will keep conditions dry over the next few days across most of Montana and northern Wyoming while snow or a rain/snow mix is possible in the extreme northwest corner of the Treasure State by Tuesday.
Winds will be mostly breezy today, but gusts over 30+ mph will kick up in spots west and north of Billings. Winds will increase over a much wider swath on Tuesday and by Wednesday gusts could push between 50-70 mph. This will linger into Thursday.
A strong upper level disturbance tag-teaming with a cold front moves across the region starting late Tuesday, pushing rain and snow into western Montana and northwestern Wyoming by Tuesday night. This system should quickly exit the area, so not much accumulation is expected although areas along the foothills and east/south of Billings could see some light accumulation. We’ll keep a close watch for any changes.
High pressure builds back in Friday ahead of another blast of energy projected to dip down from Canada this weekend. This could produce rain/snow Saturday morning.
Daytime highs will be in the 40s and 50s with nighttime lows in the 30s through mid-week before a slight cool down sets in for the weekend bringing a chance for snow.
