BILLINGS — Welcome to what is going to be the coolest day of the week in Billings, Montana. In fact, right now we have partly cloudy skies and 75 degrees with the Northeast wind at 5 mph.

And around the rest of the state our current temps are mostly into the 60s, 70s and a couple places where we still have some 80s. Those places are Missoula and Worland Wyoming.

The Doppler radar shows you we had a few scattered thunderstorms in extreme Eastern Montana this morning, but now those storms have moved into the Dakotas and are rapidly moving away from the state.

We still have a few widely scattered rain showers, up in the Northeast corner the state that are lingering around from last night's system.

The High-Resolution forecast model shows those showers will continue to move out of the area this afternoon and Billings will be left with partly cloudy skies.

We might see a few spotty thundershowers Tuesday afternoon, along the state line with Wyoming.

On Wednesday, we will see mostly sunny skies and some really high temperature starting to move into the state, thanks to a high-pressure cell over the central and northern Rocky Mountains.

Tonight, our temps of cool back down to the upper 40s and 50s across South central and Eastern Montana with mostly clear skies.

Tomorrow, back to the 80s and the 90s across the region, Billings could actually top out at 92, Hardin about 94 degrees.

But for the rest of today, we will be right around 81 degrees at 5:30 p.m. then cool back down to the upper 50s in the morning and back to 82 degrees about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

We will top out at 92 degrees on Tuesday then up to 100 degrees on Wednesday. After that, the temps roll back down to the low 90s for the rest of the week. Making this the warmest week of the year, so far.
