BILLINGS — Near record cold temperatures are coming Friday morning, but it's warming for the weekend.
We will record the coldest overnight lows since the middle of February in much of eastern Montana and northern Wyoming. Near record cold temperatures in the single digits are expected, and some valleys could drop below zero.
Some roads and sidewalks will turn icy and fog will limit visibility in spots. Use caution.
Friday afternoon, temperatures will manage to recover to the 30s to mid-40s. Expect mainly sunshine in the afternoon, but a disturbance will scatter more mountain snow and rain/snow in the lower elevations west of Billings by Friday afternoon and evening.
Generally warming conditions will follow through early next week, but an occasional spring shower is possible.
Thursday night… Mostly clear but patchy fog will develop. Low near 9. Record coldest for Friday morning is 6 set in 2018.
Friday… Morning areas of fog followed by sunshine. High of about 45.
Saturday and Sunday… A mix of clouds and sun with lows in the upper 20s and highs in the mid-to-lower 50s.
