A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for much of the area through 10pm.
Winds in excess of 60mph are the main threat with any storms that develop this evening, although large hail or an isolated tornado can't be ruled-out either.
A severe thunderstorm warning for high winds and a possible tornado was issued around 5pm for Clare county.
Although this warning has expired and a tornado was never spotted, it gives us confirmation that the storms developing late this afternoon and this evening have the potential to be dangerous.
Keep it tuned to NBC 25 for further updates.
