BILLINGS — One wintry weather system sits to the south, while the other is moving over Manitoba. Southern Montana and northern Wyoming remain cool but dry in between.

A weather system moving toward the Four Corners region of the Western US will pump a bit of moisture through Wyoming. But it will have little effect other than a few mountain snow showers and flurries in our area.

A second wave coming south from Canada will keep a cool northwesterly flow across the region. The net result is a mainly dry weekend with temperatures staying at or below seasonal averages.

Temperatures will drop down mainly into the teens by early Saturday and recover only 25 to 35 for highs Saturday afternoon. Light winds and generally up mostly sunny afternoon will follow a few overnight and morning flurries.

Sunday will trend a little warmer but breezy in the mountain foothills. Highs will be mainly in the 30s and could reach a few low 40s, including in Billings.

Dry conditions continue into early next week with the lows in the teens and the highs in the 30s through Wednesday. By Thursday and Friday, highs will edge up into the 40s with lows in the 20s taking a little on the morning chill away.

Billings forecast:

Friday night… Mostly cloudy with isolated overnight snow showers. A low near 18.

Saturday… Mostly sunny with a high of about 33. A variable light breeze.

Sunday… Sunny to mostly sunny with a high close to 40.
