Here in Billings, the day started at one below zero and remained in the single digits above zero even at 2 p.m. The Upstate could see snowflakes around midnight.

With the cold air in place, there is a 20 percent chance of rain Wednesday morning associated with the cold front.

Temps will warm to around and above the freezing mark Tuesday and Wednesday, so any light accumulations will have a tough time sticking around.

The cold blast will be about as bad as what we saw to begin the year, with temperatures in the low teens on Wednesday. High 26F. S winds shifting to W at 10 to 20 miles per hour. A river flood warning continues for this area until early Tuesday afternoon. West-southwest wind at 8 to 12 miles per hour.

Arctic Air Keeps Coming: Tuesday will be a cloudy, breezy, and downright cold day with highs in the 20s.

Mostly cloudy and cold; a few flurries or a snow shower west and north toward daybreak. Southwest winds 15 to 25 miles per hour high 40 degrees. By Friday and Saturday, temperatures will be back in the 30s.

Tomorrow night: A few clouds possible, but otherwise it's a colder night, with lows ranging through the teens along with light winds.

A nice warming trend kicks in for the second part of the work week and holds right into the weekend. Readings make it into the middle 30s to near 40 degrees.

WEEKEND SNEAK PEEK: Warmer temperatures look to continue for next weekend, with lows in the 40s and highs in the mid and upper 50s and lower 60s. This brings the chance for showers.

Cloudy and breezy on Sunday with an increasing chances of rain showers. Once the front passes by, a slot of dry air will shut off the precipitation for a while, before snow showers then rotate into the area.
