Sunny and clear weather is expected in the Magic City Monday, but severe weather could appear in the region later this week.

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Weather Outlook, warning that severe thunderstorms could arise Wednesday or Thursday. 

Large hail and heavy rain is possible with the storm, especially in southeast Montana, the warning said. Those with outdoor activities planned are encouraged to have a means of receiving weather updates while out and about. 

While bad weather may be coming, good weather is here now. 

The NWS is calling for a clear and sunny day Monday with highs in the mid 70s, a possible sprinkle before noon and a mild breeze out of the southwest. 

Lows overnight will fall to the low 50s and skies will become partly cloudy as the mild wind shifts to the northwest.

A 20 percent chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm will pop up after noon Tuesday, but for the most part, skies will be mostly sunny and highs will near 80. A northeast wind between 5 and 9 mph will become southeast in the morning.

Mostly cloudy skies are expected Tuesday night as the chance of showers increases to 30 percent. Lows will fall to 56 and winds of 5 to 11 mph will originate from the northeast.
