BILLINGS — Things are unsettled this week, with showers and some wind. But the warm temperatures will not be swayed.

Showers are most likely early Monday, with rain and snow showers in the lower elevations and 1 to 3 inches of mountain snow.

The wind will increase into the mountain foothills Monday night. Another disturbance brings yet more mountain snow and isolated showers below.

Again Wednesday, mainly mountain snow will develop with another wave.

Readings will remain above the seasonal averages throughout the week, with highs mainly in the 40s for the lower elevations through Thursday. As the winds increase by the weekend, the temperatures will likewise increase, reaching the 50s and possibly near 60 Saturday and Sunday.

With a strong jet aloft, Friday and Saturday will be particularly windy. This will increase fire risk.

Billings forecast:

Monday… Morning rain and snow showers with gradual afternoon clearing. A high of about 46. West breeze 5 to 15 mph.

Monday night… Mostly clear and dropping to around 27 for a low.

Tuesday… Partly cloudy. A sprinkle possible. Back to near 46 for the high.
