BILLINGS — On Monday afternoon, the big snowstorm has come and gone and Billings only got a one-tenth of an inch of snow. Otherwise, Billings measured 0.77 inches of rain.

Other places around the state like Cut Bank and Browning wound up with feet of snow. Melville had almost nine inches of snow and five miles west of Red Lodge reported seven inches of snow. Cooke City got six inches of snow too.

On Monday in the Billings area, the temperatures are still fairly comfortable in the low 40s with mostly cloudy skies.

Around the rest of the state, we brought out the blue colors around the mountains and temperatures are into the 20s and 30s. On either side of that, we see current temps into the 40s to the west and to the east.

The Doppler radar and satellite imagery shows that snow is now out of the state and heading into Canada while we brace for another storm moving in from the southwest Monday night.

It looks like it will produce snow in the Beartooth Mountains and rain down the valleys in Billings by 6 p.m.

Then by Tuesday morning, that rain changes over to snow as temperatures drop back down into the low 30s across much of the region.

On Wednesday, that whole storm picks up and moves out of here, and we are treated to more sunny skies.

In the meantime, Billings could wind up with light snow while Cody and Sheridan get some measurable snow in Wyoming.

On Tuesday, we top out at 44 degrees and work its way up into the 60s by Thursday and again on Sunday.


TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance for evening rain showers. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph. Low 30 degrees.

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance for morning snow showers changing to rain in the afternoon. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph. High 44 degrees.

WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny with a 20% chance for morning snow showers, then sunny skies in the afternoon. West winds 5 to 10 mph. High 53 degrees.
