As a cold front approaches, clouds and wind will increase this afternoon, followed by rain and possible thunderstorms this evening. Wind gusts could hit 40 to 45 mph.

Rain and snow showers develop tonight, with some light accumulations possible in Big Horn County, Montana (Hardin) and Sheridan County, Wyoming (Sheridan) by Tuesday morning.

Cooler temperatures will follow, with highs mainly mid-to-lower 50s the rest of the work week, and lows in the upper 20s to mid 30s.

Billings forecast:

Monday….Mostly sunny with a high near 73.  Winds increase in the afternoon.
