Q2 Weather

A nice break from the heat Wednesday, but it does not last long.

Wednesday afternoon high temperatures will be mainly in the 70s in the mountain foothills, and the 80s across the lower elevations. For the first time in a while, temperatures will be at or even a little cooler than average.

A bit of an easterly wind will push some moisture in the mountains and create isolated showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. The risk of any strong storms is slim, and the lower elevations remain generally dry.

After dropping into the mainly the 50s to low 60s overnight, highs rebound well into the upper 80s to 90s again on Thursday. Storms will be a little more widespread by Thursday afternoon and evening.

Temperatures will gradually cool through the weekend and into early next week. Highs will likely be at or cooler than seasonal averages all next week with scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Billings forecast:

Wednesday night… Partly cloudy with a low of about 63.

Thursday… Mostly sunny and hot with a high around 95. 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms by the evening.
