BILLINGS — Sure, the wind is going to blow. And cooler weather and possible showers show up before the weekend is over. But overall, not bad.
Strong winds will continue in the Livingston / Nye area off-and-on through the weekend, with gusts up to 55 mph. Counties from Yellowstone (Billings) to the west will stay breezy at times.
Friday will be sunny and warmer than an average late-February day with highs hitting upper 40s to upper 50s. Mild early Saturday with lows mainly in the 20s and some low 30s.
Saturday, clouds increase ahead of an afternoon / evening cold front that will produce a few showers and snow. The mountain foothills could pick up 1 to 2 inches of new snow.
Cooler Sunday, but otherwise fairly quiet. Highs mainly in the 30s and a few low 40s. A warm up begins again Monday.

Friday night… Increasing clouds with a low around 36. Southwest wind 10 to 20 mph.
Saturday… Clouds increase through the day but still near 55 for a high. 10 to 20 mph winds shift from the southwest to northwest as a cold front passes through in the afternoon, creating stronger gusts.
