BILLINGS — Areas of showers will gradually wind down during the evening and overnight hours and leave some areas slippery.

Much of the region has picked up sprinkles and showers throughout Thursday with the heaviest totals expected east of Billings. From there, Sheridan, Wyoming to Miles City and Baker, 1 to 2 inches of snow with pockets of heavier accumulations is possible.

Slushy or wet roads and sidewalks could freeze through early Friday. Be careful!

With the system stalled in southeast Montana, a chance for light snow or a rain/snow mix through the first half of the day is possible. Otherwise expect partial clearing from west to east starting Thursday night through Friday night.

Overnight low temperatures will be mainly in the upper teens and 20s for southern Montana northern Wyoming, and highs in the 30s to around 40 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Conditions will stay generally dry other than some mountain snow.

Looking into next week, highs will continue to edge up reaching the upper 40s to around 50 by Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Expect periods of wind in the mountain foothills.

Billings forecast:

Thursday night… Rain and snow showers during the evening and overnight hours. Low around 29. Little or no snow accumulation.

Friday… Partly sunny with a high near 39. Light variable wind.

Saturday… Mostly cloudy with a low in the mid-20s warming to around 40 by the afternoon with a mix of clouds and sun.
