BILLINGS — We still have mostly cloudy skies Tuesday afternoon in Billings, after a little bit of light snow this morning. We're calling it a 10-inch snow because the snowflakes were 10 inches apart.
Or in other words, we just had a few flurries that melted as soon as they hit the ground.
In the early afternoon, it's 37 degrees in Billings with mostly cloudy skies and a northwest wind at 17 gusting to 22 mph.
Around the rest of the state, our temps are mostly into the 20s and 30s, although Kalispell is reporting 40 degrees in the early afternoon.
The Doppler radar still shows the snow showers we had Tuesday morning hanging around the Beartooth, Pryor and Bighorn mountains.
The high-resolution forecast model shows those snow showers will linger Tuesday night in the mountains and then be gone by Wednesday morning.
High pressure starts moving into the state and clearing out the skies for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
It will be 33 degrees at 5 p.m. Tuesday, then we cool back down to the low 20s in the morning and pop back up to 37 degrees about 1 p.m. Wednesday.
We will top out at 39 on Wednesday, work our way up into the low 50s from Friday through Monday.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and colder. Northwest winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 21 degrees.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and mild. Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph. High 39 degrees.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and a little bit warmer. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph. High 45 degrees.
