NEILLSVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Several waves of thunderstorms went through Wisconsin's mid-section Wednesday morning.  

Hail fell at various times in a number of communities between 4:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. -- and the Ironton area in Sauk County was under a severe thunderstorm warning until 10:30 a.m..  

Clark County appeared to be the hardest Wednesday 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 Tuesday night.  

As of 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, almost 250 electric customers had power outages. Xcel 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 Wednesday evening.  

A cloudy and warmer day is in the offing for Thursday. Parts of southern Wisconsin could hit 80 degrees for the first time this year -- and more thunderstorms are due in later Thursday and into Friday.
