BILLINGS — The good news is the winds will ease up Wednesday. The bad news is it will be colder and likely snow overnight.
Afternoon temperatures will top off mainly in the 30s with a few low 40s in Eastern Montana and Northern Wyoming. But brisk winds will make it feel cooler and clouds will increase through the day.
Strong winds near Livingston, Nye, Big Timber, and Harlowton will gust 50 to 60 mph.
A Canadian cold front will bring areas of light snow and blowing snow overnight through early Wednesday morning. Most accumulations will be an inch of less. But pockets of a bit heavier snow are possible, with higher amounts favoring the northwest mountain slopes.
Temperatures will be cooler Wednesday, with most of the highs in the teens and 20s. Areas of northeast Montana will stay in the single digits with cold wind chills.
Tuesday... Increasing clouds with a high of about 36. Southwest wind 15 to 25 mph.
Tuesday night... Periods of light snow especially overnight. Otherwise cloudy to mostly cloudy with a low near 22.
Wednesday... Light morning snow. Cloudy to mostly cloudy by the afternoon and again around 36 for the high.
