BILLINGS — The slow-moving but vigorous storm which arrived Monday in Montana and Wyoming barely moved on Tuesday, and we continued to get strong, damaging wind along with areas of rain. The wind will continue tonight and more wind will arrive, and colder air will allow more snow to fall mainly in the mountains, but it's also possible in our lower foothills.

The High Wind Warnings will expire by Wednesday morning, but it will still be windy most of Wednesday. Winter Storm Warnings will be in effect for all of our local area mountains from Tuesday evening through midday Thursday. The highest elevations could receive 12-20 inches of snow. Combined with the wind, that snow will be dangerous for travel through Thursday.

Most lower elevations north and east of Billings will receive rain rather than snow... areas south and west of Billings will have the best chance for snow both in the mountains and in the foothills. We can expect decreasing shower activity and weakening wind through the day Thursday, we'll have rapid warming to above average levels Friday afternoon through next Monday, and Mother's Day Sunday will be quite pleasant.
