Q2 Weather: Changes from place to place, and day by day

Posted: Updated:

Big contrasts in temperatures over a short distance and a small difference in altitude Friday, and we are not done with snow quite yet.

High temperatures will vary from subzero in eastern Montana to the 20s to low 30s in the mountain foothills west of Billings Friday. 

With a shallow layer of cold air at the surface, there could be noticeable differences between the airport and downtown in Billings.

Expect a mix of clouds and sun. Snow showers will be light, and come a go through the day. Some computer models are indicating a band of snow from Harlowton south to Billings and Lame Deer later in the day that could produce a couple of inches of new snow quickly.

Warmer and drier conditions will develop Saturday, and some areas could start to warm overnight.  Highs will be mainly in the 20s to upper 30s Saturday and Sunday.

Cold air backs into the area late Sunday, and will produce more light snow.

Billings forecast:

Friday: Morning snow showers and flurries. Mostly cloudy and cold, with a high near 10. Wind chill values as low as -15. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible. 

Tonight: Light snow likely, mainly before midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a temperature rising to around 15 early tomorrow.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 38. Westerly wind 10 to 15 mph.
