Seth Nagle, senior forecaster, said there's a chance of 1 inch or greater sized hail and winds of up to 60 miles per hour. There will be a threat for a few tornadoes with the strongest storms as well. It covers 41 of Wisconsin's 72 counties as several severe thunderstorms are expected throughout the region.

"Our main concern is going to be the hail and high winds", Nagle said. The event that straddled Boone and McHenry counties lasted about 13 minutes, the National Weather Service says.

Locally damaging winds may also occur with stronger storms - particularly into this evening when storms are likely to congeal into one or more organized bands capable of more widespread damaging winds.

We get a break from the rain tonight into Thursday, but then more storms with heavy rain are possible Thursday night into Friday.
