Published 2 months ago by The Billings Gazette

Billings’s high temperatures are expected to stay the mid-30s through the week with no heavy snow in the forecast, the National Weather Service reports.

After a string of days in the single digits, Billings should warm up a bit with low overnight temperatures in the teens and daytime highs around 35 degrees until Friday. Occasional light snowfall is possible Monday. Temperatures remain below what’s typical for the end of February, beginning of March.

“Billings, our average high would be 41 degrees. We’re 6 degrees cooler than that,” said Todd Chambers, meteorologist at the National Weather Service station in Billings.

Chambers said a light dusting of snow was possible in Billings on Monday, but chances for snow throughout the week were 20 percent. Livingston and Nye were likely to receive more accumulation as clouds hugged the Beartooth Mountains.

Daytime temperatures were expected to approach 39 degrees Wednesday before sliding back into the mid-30s Saturday.

Southeast toward Miles City, the weather was expected to be dry with high temperatures near 30 degrees. Low overnight temperatures were expected to stay near the low double digits.

Along the Hi-Line of the Northern Montana, high temperatures are expected to be in the high-20s with lows in upper single digits to 10 degrees.

Highway conditions around the region ranged from scattered and wet to areas of frost and ice.
