High Wind Warning in effect from midnight tonight till 5am Tuesday for the Livingston, Big Timber, Harlowton and the Beartooth Foothills. Southwest winds gusting 60 to 70 mph, with some areas around Livingston, likely to hit gusts between 70 and 80 mph on Sunday night through Monday. Travel may be affected.

Tonight:

May see a lingering snow shower or two, especially in the higher elevations, but most of the region will mainly be dry, cold and clear with temperatures in the teens and 20’s.

Winds will start to increase, especially around the Livingston and Cody areas. Again, High Wind Warnings will start to go into effect.

Tomorrow (Sunday):

Windy for most of the region. Again, watch for those warnings.

Winds will start to raise temperatures a bit however, as most of the area will sit in the high 30’s and low to mid 40’s.

Monday - Saturday:

Monday will be warm and windy, with temps pushing 50 degrees here in Billings.

Tuesday, winds will start to die down as a cold front move in. Temps into the mid to upper 30’s for most of us. This cold front may also bring with it a chance of snow. Accumulations are expected to be light, less than an inch in the lower elevations. Higher elevations may see 1 to 2 inches.

Most of the rest of the week will be partly cloudy with highs in the low 30’s.
