(5/7/14) Several waves of thunderstorms went through Wisconsin's mid-section this morning.
Hail fell at various times in a number of communities between 4:30 and nine this morning -- and the Ironton area in Sauk County was under a severe thunderstorm warning until 10:30. Clark County appeared to be the hardest this morning. Almost tennis-ball-sized hail fell near Neillsville, and Christie -- about 20 miles west of Marshfield -- had hail two inches deep. Places between Galesville and Sheboygan had anywhere from a quarter-inch to one-inch hail. That was after southern Wisconsin had hail in some areas last night. As of 9:45 this morning, almost 250 electric customers had power outages. X-cel Energy had around 100 outages in northwest Wisconsin, including 70 at Menomonie. A low pressure system that's approaching the state from the west is expected to bring more showers and thunderstorms to all of Wisconsin at least into this evening. A cloudy and warmer day is in the offing for tomorrow. Parts of southern Wisconsin could hit 80-degrees for the first time this year -- and more thunderstorms are due in later tomorrow and into Friday
