A storm system moved through Billings on Monday afternoon, dropping .03 inch of rain just before 4 p.m.

According to the National Weather Service’s Billings office, the storm moved in as quickly as it left before heading east, dropping similar amounts of rain across much of the region.

Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to continue Tuesday night, with a 50 percent chance earlier turning into a 60 percent chance during the evening, and temperatures should reach nearly 70 degrees before dropping into the high 40s overnight.

A chance of rain remains in the forecast through Thursday, with the NWS predicting at least a 30 percent chance until that evening before it tapers off. Temperatures could also begin to rise on Thursday, with a predicted high of 74, followed by a high of 82 on Friday.
