BILLINGS — It is another beautiful day in Billings. Even though we do see a few high clouds off in the distance, we have plenty of sunshine in downtown Billings.
The early afternoon temperature was 62 degrees with a west wind at 20 mph.
Around the rest of the state, our temps are mostly to the 40s and 50s out in the far west, 50s and 60s back in eastern Montana with some of the hot spots around Sheridan, Glasgow and Williston, North Dakota.
Our thunderstorm outlook for Tuesday shows just a stray thunderstorm possible in the northeast corner of the state. In fact, that's exactly where we are seeing it on the Doppler radar.
Those showers are being drawn into the Dakotas and leaving Montana.
The high-resolution forecast model shows a few showers will be moving into western Montana as well Tuesday, but still have a hard time getting up over the mountains.
So that means Billings will be looking at generally dry conditions with mostly sunny skies.
We will keep that condition right on through Thursday. We'll stay into the 60s for the rest of Tuesday, then cool back down into the low 50s in the morning.
After that, it's back to the upper 60s by 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.
However, the temperatures will slowly start warming up by the end of the week. In fact, we could see 90s by Friday and Saturday, then drop back down to the 70s at the beginning of next week.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and cool. West winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 49 degrees.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and warmer. West winds 10 to 20 mph. High 73 degrees.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and warmer still. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph. High 82 degrees.
