After a somewhat mild day Friday, the weather will turn colder and wetter in parts of Montana and Wyoming in the late evening, including Billings, the National Weather Service says.

The NWS has issued a hazardous weather outlook for potions of central, south central and southeast Montana, as well as north central Wyoming. A weather system will move through the area and bring the potential for periods of accumulating snowfall, especially along the north facing slopes and foothills of the Beartooth and Bighorn Mountains.

That could cause poor visibility and difficult travel conditions, the NWS says.

In Billings on Friday, there's a slight chance of snow showers, mixing with rain, after 8 a.m., then gradually ending. Skies will turn partly sunny, with a high near 50 and west wind 13 to 18 mph. 

Friday night, look for a 50 percent chance of snow after 11 p.m. Skies will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 28, and new snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.
