BILLINGS — Temperatures begin to drop off Monday, but our real focus is on the Thanksgiving weather.

Highs will be in the 30s to low 40s Monday, close to the 30 year average. Expect a mix of clouds and sun and some mainly mountain and foothill showers.

Winds drop off after a gusty weekend, but temperatures will also continue to slide through the end of the week. Highs will be mainly in the 20s and 30s on Tuesday and Wednesday, then mainly the 20s on Thursday and Friday with lows is coldest single digits by the weekend.

In addition to the cold, snow looks likely to move into the area starting Wednesday night and possibly lingering as long as Saturday morning.

Areas to the north and west of Billings could see impacts on travel Wednesday. Snow and blowing snow are most likely to the south and east of Billings by Thanksgiving Day and Friday.

The timing and intensity are still in question, but serious travel impacts are possible. Please check back for updates.
