BILLINGS - A weak disturbance is expected to pass to the north or our area Saturday night, increasing winds slightly across Montana. The main impacts of this system will likely stay to the north of the Canadian boarder and only drop temperatures slightly overnight Saturday. Easter Sunday is shaping up to be a gorgeous one, with temperatures rising into the upper 60s. The warming trend is due to a building high pressure ridge that enters our region after Saturday nights weak frontal passage. This ridge will continue to build into Monday allowing for temperates to flirt with the 70s and conditions to remain dry. As for the big picture this following week, conditions are expected to undergo a big change Tuesday afternoon. A Pacific front along with a tightly knit low pressure cell are expected to pass over the state, drawing significant amounts of moisture our way. No indication of thunderstorms has shown up, but with day time heating reaching the 70s the possibility remains for Tuesday night. This system looks to last through the latter part of next week, providing a wet and rainy couple of days.
