Weather in southeastern Montana and the upper plains region may have been hit by sub-freezing temperatures and some snow, but there will be a warming trend hitting the region over the weekend.

According to the National Weather Service office in Billings, the region will get warm for the weekend.

The office announced on Facebook Tuesday that the “Chilly weather will persist through the work week. Mainly light snow will continue at times, especially Wednesday night to Friday, when some locations will likely see accumulation.”

“This weekend will be warmer and dry, then another cold front arrives Sunday night and Monday,” the office announced.

Fallon County got some snow in recent days when the cold front hit, but most of the snow hit other areas in the state.

Baker had highs in the low to mid-30s during the first part of the week, with it warming up into the 40s through Friday before climbing to 59 degrees on Saturday.

The NWS office also predicted more than a 40 percent probability of precipitation through Friday.
