BILLINGS — It has turned out to be another beautiful day here in the city of Billings, Montana. Look at that sunshine out there and the temperature is in the process of warming up too.
In the early afternoon it was already 34 degrees with a north wind at 9 mph.
Around the rest of the state our current temps are mostly to the 20s and 30s, with Billings one of the hot spots with 34 degrees.
On the threat board the only thing we see is a Wind Advisory beginning at 6 a.m. Wednesday morning and going until 6 a.m. Thursday in the Beartooth foothills for winds gusting to 60 mph.
Right now, Montana seems to be kind of in between weather disturbances. A big snowstorm is moving to the Midwest from the Eastern Dakotas, all the way to the Great Lakes. All while our next system is starting to move on shore on the West Coast.
The High-Resolution forecast model shows we will continue to be dry through the evening and just cloudy skies rolling in by Wednesday morning.
However, by that afternoon we could start to see some more snow showers moving into the western mountains.
Some of that snow will come close to the Billings area by Thursday morning at 10 a.m. and then shoot back down into the Bighorn mountains of Wyoming.
Snowfall amounts are expected to stay mainly out in the west, with a few flurries near Billings on Saturday evening. Outside of that we are expecting nothing to fall in Eastern Montana over the rest of the week.
It will be 28 degrees at 6 p.m. tonight and we will keep it into the 20s overnight until tomorrow morning when we start zooming back up into the 30s. It'll be 39 degrees at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
We will top out at 39 degrees on Wednesday, even into the low 40s on Thursday and Friday and pop up to the upper 40s on Saturday and Sunday and back to the mid-40s on Monday.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and cool. West winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 22 degrees
WEDNESDAY: Partly Cloudy, breezy and Mild SW winds 15 to 25 mph. High 39 degrees
THURSDAY: Mostly cloudy, warmer and not as windy. West winds 10 to 20 mph. High 43 degrees
