If the forecasts hold true, Friday should provide a pretty accurate peek at Billings' weather through Labor Day.

After two days of temperatures reaching into the high 80s, an overnight storm that began late Thursday and dropped about 0.14 inches of rain on the Billings area in an hour should help to cool things off a bit on Friday.

The National Weather Service's Billings office predicts a high of 76 degrees, six cooler than the Aug. 29 average, to compliment mostly sunny skies throughout the day.

Overnight, the weather should remain fairly calm with a predicted low of 57 degrees and partly cloudy skies.

Saturday's high will top out at 73 degrees, according to the NWS. It could also be a rainy one, with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

During the evening, that chance of rain and thunderstorms bumps up to 60 percent while the low will fall into the low 50s.

Sunday and Monday, Labor Day, look to bring much of the same, with highs in the low 70s, lows around 50 and a 20 percent chance of storms throughout.
