Rain is in the forecast as warmer temperatures continue in Billings through the weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Billings, warning that freezing rain could make snow covered roads treacherous. 

Snow melting in the warm weather will be unable to soak into frozen ground, causing lowland flooding, the warning reads.

The warning also encourages travelers to be aware of 50 mph winds in Livingston and up to 10 inches of snow falling in the Beartooths Wednesday and Thursday before traveling through those areas.

A slight chance of rain is possible after noon Tuesday, as partly sunny skies push highs near 48. 

Cloudy skies and showers are possible after midnight Tuesday night, as lows approach 40. 

There is a 40 percent chance for a shower on Thursday as highs near 48. Skies will be mostly cloudy. 

Half an inch of snow is possible Thursday night as lows approach 28 under cloudy skies.
