Q2 Weather: The snow is gone but the cold will stay Monday evening

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - After a cold start and a couple inches of snow, the sun has finally come out in south-central Montana.

Unfortunately, temperatures are still bitterly cold thanks to some Arctic air that continues to hang on in Eastern Montana.

At least at 2 p.m. today, the temperature in Billings had climbed up above 0 to 5 degrees above zero.

The Doppler radar shows the light snowfall we had this morning continues to linger across parts of south-central Montana, and that’s pretty much where it will fizzle out.

The computer models show clearing skies will continue to move into Eastern Montana as the night goes on, and we can expect sunny skies on Tuesday with warmer temperatures.

The only issue we are still dealing with tonight is a winter storm watch in the Northwest corner of the state by Great Falls in Glacier National Park.

There, we still have the chance for 5 to 10 inches of snow with local amounts up to 20 in the mountains up there.

 Plus we have a wind chill advisory the northeast corner the state until 10 a.m. Tuesday. Wind chill temperatures could get as cold as -15 degrees to -30 degrees overnight.

The next shot of moisture seems to be moving in late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, and very much like today, we are not expecting a lot of snow.

Billings could see a little more than 1 ¼  inches of snow, while Miles City could get an inch and a half the same thing in Livingston and Bozeman, Lewistown to get over 2 inches of snow.


Tonight: Mostly clear and cold again. Temperatures will be rising after midnight with Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph in the evening, increasing 10 to 20 mph overnight. Wind chill readings could be as cold as 15 to 25 below zero. Low -6 degrees.

Tuesday: Sunny, breezy and not as cold. Southwest winds 15 to 25 mph. High 34 degrees.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a 30 degrees chance for afternoon snow. West winds 15 to 25 mph high 39 degrees.
