BILLINGS — Livingston, Nye and the surrounding areas will see winds gust 35 to 45 mph Wednesday night, but otherwise light winds around the area.

Lows will be in the teens and 20s. Highs will climb back to the 40s Thursday. A bit more wind looks to push the highs into the lower 50s by Friday.

Some mid-level moisture Thursday night and Friday will result in a few mountain snow showers, but otherwise just a cloudy sky. By Friday night into Saturday, a couple of inches of mountain snow will fall in the high country, and pockets of light rain/snow could push out onto the plains late Friday night through Saturday morning.

The extended outlook shows a few waves producing light showers at best through the middle of next week. High temperatures will vary a little day by day but stay close to average.
