BILLINGS — It is another beautiful day in Billings with mostly sunny skies and comfortable temperatures.
We see a few clouds around the mountains and a little bit of snow way up in the top of the Beartooths.
Tuesday afternoon, it's mostly sunny in Billings and 75 degrees with a north wind at 6 mph.
Around the rest of the region, the temps are mostly to the 60s and 70s in Montana and northern Wyoming.
The Doppler radar shows a few scattered sprinkles in Phillips and Garfield counties, and a bigger storm is south of Interstate 25 in northern Wyoming.
But all the showers seem like they are in a hurry to get into the Dakotas.
The high-resolution forecast model shows a few spotty showers in southeastern Montana, but those too are taking off for the Dakotas and not coming anywhere near Billings.
This means we can enjoy mostly sunny skies the rest of Tuesday and Wednesday, with just a few high clouds across the northeast corner of the state Wednesday night.
On Thursday, we expect mostly sunny skies across almost all of Montana except by Glacier National Park.
Temperatures Tuesday night in south-central and eastern Montana will cool down to the 40s and 50s with mostly clear skies.
Then on Wednesday, we will get back up into the 70s and 80s and maybe even a few low 90s around Hardin and Worland.
However, this evening in Billings, it will be 80 degrees at 5:30 p.m., cooling back down to the 50s in the morning and back to 80 degrees about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.
We will top out at 87 degrees on Wednesday, 93 Thursday, 95 on Friday then back to the 80s over the weekend and the early part of next week.
