Monday Night . A slight chance of rain and snow before 10pm, then a slight chance of snow between 10pm and midnight.

Travel could be impacted late Saturday night through Sunday morning as temperatures fall below freezing, to the upper 20s by daybreak. That's when the weather service says increasing clouds will occur as a slow-moving front brings more precipitation to the area. Little or no snow accumulation is expected, and the low will be around 12.

After warmer-than-average temperatures for the last month, winter will return this weekend with the promise of snow.

Billings remains under a winter weather warning for heavy snow after waking up to up to five inches of new snow Thursday morning.

Periods of snow will continue over the next few days, with Billings in the order of 6 to 8 inches of total snowfall. The best chance for snow is across the southern half of the state. "In a unusual twist of fate, that high could be too strong for snow lovers, essentially pushing our Sunday storm to our south". New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible. Cloudy skies will otherwise clear through mid-morning, and winds could also gust as high as 34 miles per hour.

The confidence is rather high that this will be a short-lived snow event.

The winter storm watch is in effect from 1 a.m.to 4 p.m. South wind 6 to 11 miles per hour becoming northwest in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 90%. On Thursday night the low will be around 35.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 12.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 27. The brunt of the system will be on Saturday night with rain and snow mixture that will turn to snow.
