BILLINGS — It has turned out to be a beautiful Monday morning with just a few wispy high clouds over Billings.
Our temperature is a little chilly at 19 degrees and our wind is out of the southwest at 23, gusting to 33 mph, which gives us a windchill factor that feels like +2 degrees.
Around the rest of the state, the current temps are mostly to the teens and 20s, although it's a little chilly at Worland, Wyoming, at 8 degrees.
We do have Winter Weather Advisory from Canada down to Sweet Grass County, not so much for new snow, but for blowing and drifting snow through Tuesday morning. Winds could be gusting to 75 mph there.
The Doppler radar shows a little line of light snow showers from just outside Great Falls, all the way up toward Glasgow. Outside of that, we just have partly cloudy skies.
Our high-resolution forecast model shows Billings will be in mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day and Tuesday morning, but then a few partly cloudy skies roll into Billings in the afternoon and Wednesday.
