Billings Area: A little warmer than normal again today but a quick moving cold front will bring seasonal temperatures back to the Billings area by tomorrow and Thursday. We should also expect breezy to windy conditions for late today, tomorrow and Thursday.
Montana: A cold front is moving into northwest Montana today and this will create a little bit of shower activity, mostly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures. By tomorrow this cold front will be in eastern Montana but conditions will likely stay mostly dry. Areas along and east of the Continental Divide should also expect breezy to windy conditions.
Wyoming: A gradual transition in the upper level weather pattern will allow for the passage of several weather impulses through the week. The first will move in today, not having much impact on our weather other than producing some scattered high clouds. Temperatures will remain mild with no precipitation expected. Another front moving in later on Wednesday may produce a few late showers with otherwise no big changes developing.
Yellowstone: Increasing clouds throughout the day and there will be a little bit of rain and snow shower activity by late today or tonight. The few showers that do develop will be light and a small chance of daily showers will continue just about each day through Friday.
Bighorn Canyon: Mild yet again but we will see breezy to windy conditions by late today. Brisk winds continue to be possible on Wednesday and after today the remainder of the week will be cooler with a small chance for scattered showers.
