BILLINGS — The big bad thunderstorms have come and gone and now you're looking at mostly sunny skies in Billings Wednesday.

It is a very nice day at 2 p.m. with 77 degrees and mostly sunny skies.

Around the rest of the state, our temps are into the 60s and 70s out in the west and 70s and 80s back in the east and in northern Wyoming.

The Doppler radar tells a similar story Wednesday from what we had Tuesday, except for the lack of severe thunderstorms.

What we see is another low-pressure cell with rain rotating around it and dragging moisture into northern Montana.

The high-resolution forecast model shows most of the heavier storms will stay in southern Canada Wednesday or just light rain is expected across the Hi-Line of Montana.

On Thursday, we will see more showers move in from the west very late in the day.

A fast-moving impulse will track from Missoula toward Glasgow going around Billings.

Our temperatures Wednesday night will cool back down to the 40s and 50s across south-central and eastern Montana and they get back up into the 80s and low 90s on Thursday.

We will get up to 80 degrees in Billings by 6 p.m. and then roll back down to 53 in the morning and back to 80 degrees about 2 p.m. Thursday.

We will top out at 86 on Thursday, get up to 97 on Sunday and then back to the 80s on Monday and Tuesday of next week.


TONIGHT: Mostly clear and mild. West winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 56 degrees.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and warmer. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph. High 86 degrees.
