BILLINGS — Very slippery conditions possible Monday, with more cold and snow later in the week.

Areas of freezing rain are possible through the morning hours moving from west to east across Eastern Montana. Extremely slick conditions could develop in a short period of time, as precipitation freezes on contact on streets and sidewalks.

Overnight temperatures will drop mainly to the 30s, but for much of the area will warm overnight. Highs mainly into the 40s to some 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday. Billings likely staying in the mid to lower 40s.

Another weather system brings another round of snow showers Wednesday night through Thursday. Expect accumulating snow and cold temperatures to follow. Highs will be mainly in the 20s through the weekend and overnight temperatures will likely set records in the single digits in teens.
