BILLINGS — On Friday afternoon, the sunny skies are giving way to mostly cloudy skies and some snow showers are mixing with rain in the Beartooth foothills.

Meanwhile, back in Billings, it's mostly cloudy with a temperature still right at 60 degrees.

Around the rest of the state, our temps are mostly into the 50s and 60s everywhere you look. Although it is a little cooler in Bozeman and Livingston, which were both into the 40s at 2 p.m.

The Doppler radar tells the story Friday. A low-pressure cell in southern Canada continues to sling a little moisture our way.

It seems to be riding down the spine of the Rockies and traveling to the south and west of Billings.

You can even see the Beartooth Mountains are getting a fresh coating of snow, while the foothills are starting to see scattered light rain.

The high-resolution forecast model shows those showers will probably shoot past Billings.

A new batch of rain moves in overnight Friday and about 1 a.m. Saturday will give Billings light rain.

After that, we will see mostly sunny skies on Saturday and a fresh batch of moisture streams east of Billings on Sunday.

Our temps continue to stay into the 60s Friday afternoon and start rolling back down to the 30s the morning and back up to the mid-50s by Saturday afternoon.

We will top out at 58 on Saturday, then roll back down to 48 for high on Monday and get back up to 64 degrees by Thursday of next week.
