While most of the threat of severe weather is diminished, tornado watches remain in effect for much of the Tri-State area 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.
By then, the storms should have finished moving through the area according to our StormTracker 19 Forecast Team.
Flood warnings remain in effect for parts of Western Wisconsin into Friday.
As the storms moved through Wednesday, a number of viewers took pictures and shared them with us.
The slide show has a number of photos taken during the afternoon and evening when the storms were active.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to share their pictures.
If you have any photos to share, you can go to our Facebook page or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
