BILLINGS — Some ups and downs in the forecast through Saturday. Then as far as the temperatures are concerned, it’s all down heading into next week.

Snow showers will linger in the eastern plains today with little accumulation. However areas from around Hysham, Forsyth to Miles City extending northward to around Roundup and Lewistown and southward toward Broadus and Ekalaka could experience some slick roadways.

With a mix of clouds and sun, areas from Billings to the west will be mainly in the mid to upper 40s today with a few low 50s possible. East of Billings, where the showers are more numerous, highs will stay in the 30s and 20s.

Wednesday is shaping up to be the last of the warmer days, with many of the highs hitting the upper 30s to upper 40s through southern Montana and northern Wyoming. A cold front early Thursday will draw temperatures to the 20s and 30s and produce areas of snow Thursday night through Friday morning.

Temperatures will rebound a bit on Saturday with periods of wind before colder air starts to move in Sunday. The timing on the cold front is still a question, but the overall effect will be much colder readings early next week.

Billings forecast:

Tuesday… Mostly cloudy with a Southwest wind 5 to 15 mph. High near 48.

Tuesday night… Mostly cloudy with a low of about 32.

Wednesday… Partly cloudy with a high close to 49. Southwest wind 10 to 20 mph.
