BILLINGS — The only real question for Wednesday is how warm will we get.
After a quiet day Tuesday, clouds will increase in the evening hours, helping to hold temperatures into the 30s and 40s early Wednesday morning. The wind will generally be light.
As a high-pressure ridge builds in Wednesday, expect high temperatures to be mainly in the 60s to low 70s through eastern Montana northern Wyoming. Clouds will decrease through the morning.
Temperatures remain warmer than average on Thursday, but a disturbance moving through later in the day brings decreasing temperatures and an increasing chance of rain and snow heading toward the weekend.
Highs will be mainly in the 60s Thursday but dropping to the 40s to low 50s by Sunday. Expect periods of wind and scattered to isolated showers from Friday through Monday.
Tuesday night… Increasing clouds with a low near 41.
Wednesday… Warm and dry with a high of about 71. Light southwest wind 5 to 15 mph.
Thursday… Still warm during the day with a high in the upper 60s to about 70. Clouds will increase bringing a chance of late day showers.
