Q2 Weather: More snow and cold awaits us tonight in Billings

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - Not only is it a cold day, it’s a cold-looking day with mostly cloudy skies and a few light snow flurries in the air.

At 2 p.m., the temperature in Billings was 1 degree, and we had to fight to get up that high.       

The threat board is basically full again across Montana because we have another winter storm moving into Western Montana.

This next storm has heavy snow, high winds, blowing and drifting snow.

Here in the Billings area it looks like we could see 3 to 5 inches of snow later tonight and Friday morning.

However, most of the heaviest snow is forecast to stay north of Billings and north of I-94.

 The Doppler radar shows a little light snow already falling in the south-central Montana.

However, the big push of moisture is still moving onshore right now and is forecast to move into Billings and south-central Montana later tonight.

The high-resolution forecast model shows the next big band of snow will move into Billings around 9 p.m. Thursday evening.

By Friday morning, that snow will move into Eastern Montana and only a few flurries will be left around noon for Billings.

Our temperatures will remain fairly flat, into the single digits above and below zero for the next 24 hours.

 BILLINGS FORECAST

Tonight: A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect from 5 p.m. Thursday until noon Friday. Mostly cloudy with a 70 percent chance of snow, accumulations could reach around 2 inches. Northeast winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 0 degrees.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance for rain and snow showers in the afternoon, and not as cold. Southwest winds 15 to 25 mph. High 38 degrees.
