BILLINGS — Fair weather clouds are hanging over Billings this Monday, April 2.
The early afternoon temperature Billings was 62 degrees under those partly cloudy skies. And around the rest of the state, our temperatures are mostly to the 50s and 60s everywhere you look. It is simply a beautiful day across Montana and northern Wyoming.
The Doppler radar shows you only a minor weather disturbance that started up by Havre, in north-central Montana, and continues to move towards central Montana by Miles City and Fallon County.
Outside of that, we're enjoying mostly sunny skies across much of the state.
The high-resolution forecast model shows that little minor weather disturbance in Fallon County will continue to push its way over into the rest of the Dakotas later Monday evening.
This means we can enjoy mostly sunny skies for the rest of Monday and much of Tuesday as well.
A new ridge of high pressure continues to dominate our weather patterns in the Pacific Northwest, which continues to clear out the skies and the precipitation.
The next system starts moving into the northwest corner of the state Wednesday afternoon and will eventually bring a chance for some thundershowers to the Billings area Thursday afternoon.
Our temperatures will continue to be very comfortable today, 65 degrees at 3 p.m., cooling back down to 41 in the morning and up to 67 degrees about 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
We will actually top out at 72 degrees on Tuesday, then roll it back down to 59 for a high on Thursday and then work our way back up through the 60s over the weekend.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear and mild. West winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 40 degrees.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny and warmer. West winds 10 to 20 mph. High 72 degrees.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny and still warm. West winds 10 to 20 mph. High 68 degrees.
