Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Billings MT 259 PM MST Fri Nov 27 2020
Today through Saturday night .
Gusty winds continue across much of the region this afternoon, with gusts of 40 to 50 mph along the foothill, gusts around 35 mph near Billings, and gusts of 20 to 30 around Miles City. Winds are expected to continue overnight, with persistent pressure gradient over the mountains.
Gusty winds are expected to increase around Livingston and Nye overnight, as gradient orientation becomes more north to south, supporting gap flow winds. Strongest winds appear to begin shortly before midnight, and continue through Saturday morning. Other areas in the foothills west of Billings could also see gusts of 45 to 55 mph Saturday. A weak cold front crossing the region Saturday should shut off the strongest gap winds around Livingston and the western foothills by early afternoon. Winds will turn more west to northwest behind the front and remain breezy, with gusts of 35 to 45 mph along the foothills. Lower elevations across southeast Montana will commonly see gusts of 25 to 35 mph.
Winds will taper off Saturday night, but become breezy again along the foothills Sunday, with gusts only around 25 mph.
Conditions are expected to remain dry through the period. Downslope flow and prefrontal warming will help drive highs into the low 50s Saturday, but it will likely not feel so warm with the wind. Temperatures Sunday will recover quickly following the front, with highs into the 50s once again, as upper level ridging builds in across the region. Gilstad
Monday through Wednesday .
The interruption to a very benign, dry pattern is a wave moving across the area Tuesday, which could bring some snow showers to the mountains. Otherwise the forecast is still dominated by winds. The strongest winds still are expected to be behind the system Tuesday and into Wednesday. Much of the area could see gusty day with gusts 30 to 40 mph. Temperatures wise, the pattern of highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s. Reimer
VFR conditions will prevail through the period. West to southwest winds will gust to 45kts over the western foothills (K6S0/K3HT) will continue to decrease through the afternoon, with strong winds around KLVM continuing overnight. Reimer

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
