A fast-moving but strong system is expected to bring heavy snow showers and gusty northwest winds to the region through Friday night, the National Weather Service said.

Snow accumulations, however, are expected to be light in lower elevations, but roads will be wet and could become slick in the evening across southeastern Montana and northcentral Wyoming.

There is a slight chance for snow showers and rain in the Billings area Friday morning before skies turn partly sunny in the afternoon. The high will be about 52 degrees with north winds up to 11 mph. The low will be about 38 degrees with mostly cloudy skies.

Saturday will warm up to about 63 degrees while skies will be mostly cloudy. The chance for showers increases Saturday night to 40 percent, and the low will be about 36 degrees.

Rain and snow are likely to return on Sunday, with a 70 percent chance of precipitation during the day and into Sunday night. Skies will be cloudy while the high will be about 47 degrees. New snow accumulation could be about three inches.
