BILLINGS — It is a quiet night or should I say silent night in Billings tonight on Christmas. Billings did see some snow flurries this evening but they melted as soon as they hit the pavement.
At 8 p.m. it was 32 degrees in Billings and the wind was calm.
Around the rest of the state our temperatures are mostly to the teens and 20s although Billings and miles city as well as northern Wyoming were in the low 30s.
The Doppler radar shows you the light snow that moved to the Billings area continues in south-central Montana tonight.
We do see another batch of snow, that could move into the Billings area before the night is over.
This snow shield in south-central Montana is the only significant snow in the state at this time.
The high-resolution forecast model shows we were expecting to see some light snow showers across the south-central part of the state and then as the night goes on those will fade away or drop back down to Wyoming.
This will leave us with mostly sunny skies most of the day on Thursday.
On Friday a new batch of snow starts moving in out of the Northwest and could eventually push into the Billings area late on Friday night.
Our temperatures will continue to stay into the 30s this evening and the drop back down into the 20s in the morning. It's back up to 35 degrees tomorrow afternoon, then back to 30 degrees about 7:30 p.m.
The rest of the week our temperatures will continue to flirt with the upper 30s and 40s until we jump up to 45 degrees on Tuesday.
