BILLINGS — After picking up a couple inches of snow Monday morning, the snow has finally stopped in Billings, but the cloudy skies remain.

In the early afternoon, it was 28 degrees in Billings with a southwest wind at 13 mph, giving us a windchill factor that feels like 17 degrees.

Around the rest of the state, current temps are mostly into the teens and 20s in the northeast, but we see 20s and 30s out in the west.

Beginning Tuesday at 6 a.m., we have a Wind Advisory lasting until noon in the Beartooth foothills for winds gusting to 65 mph.

The Doppler radar and satellite imagery shows what's left of our morning snowstorm. We see clearing skies to the north, and snow continues to work its way into northern Wyoming.

That's exactly what our high-resolution forecast model is showing. The snow we had earlier on will continue to push its way farther south into Wyoming with clearing skies to the North.

Then by Tuesday, you'll see another chance for more scattered snow showers late in the day, but otherwise mostly cloudy skies.

On Wednesday, we will see partly cloudy skies but increasing clouds for Thursday with most of the snow remaining around the mountains.

Snowfall amounts remain light for both Livingston and Billings, as well as Worland and Sheridan, Wyoming.

At 6 p.m. Monday, it will be 28 degrees in Billings. That will cool back down into the low 20s in the morning and back up to 33 degrees by 2 p.m. Tuesday.

We will top out at 35 on Tuesday then up to the 40s on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and then pop up to 50 degrees on Sunday.
