BILLINGS — Snow and cold move back into the picture.

Temperatures remain above seasonal averages Tuesday, but nowhere close to the sunshine and warm readings on Monday. Highs will be mainly in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Clouds increase throughout the afternoon with rain showers becoming more numerous as the day goes on from North to South. Rain will change to snow Tuesday night and continue Wednesday.

Snow will be heaviest over the foothills and mountains with light accumulations across the plains. Freezing drizzle is possible over southeast Montana early Wednesday morning, and would result in some very slick conditions.

Expect snow showers to decrease from west to east Wednesday. Highs both Wednesday and Thursday will be mainly in the 30s despite plenty of sunshine Thursday afternoon.

Tuesday… Mostly cloudy with a chance of rain increasing during the afternoon and evening. About 51 for the high with a light wind.

Tuesday night… Rain likely during the evening switching to a rain snow mix or all snow overnight. Light accumulations possible. Low of about 31.

Wednesday… Mostly cloudy to cloudy with snow likely. Accumulations looked to be light. A high near 35.
