It’s May 11th, and sleet was reported about 70 miles east of here. Let’s go somewhere else, like Billings. Spring HAS to be there, right? Right?!
At 853pm MDT, the temperature at Billings, MT was 73 degrees under partly cloudy skies. A strong upper-level ridge remains over the Western US, which is leading to some extremely warm temperatures in the Northwest US. This ridge isn’t going to break down until Monday, when an area of low pressure shifts through the Pacific Northwest and into the Northern Plains, dropping a cold front through the Billings area. Temperatures on Tuesday will be a good 10-15deg colder than Mother’s Day and Monday, but we won’t have to worry about that for now. A couple of stray showers and thunderstorms are possible with the front’s passage, but better chances will be found off to the northwest. Enjoy a very warm Mother’s Day!
