HOUSTON – The last big round of the heavy rain and storms was moving out of the Houston area early Wednesday, but there's still a lingering chance for showers this afternoon, KHOU 11 Meteorologist Chita Johnson said.

By 5:30 a.m. most of the rain was moving into East Texas. In Houston there were 5,000 CenterPoint power outages reported, down from 30,000 overnight.

“We’re just looking at light on and off again showers this morning,” said Johnson. “Keep in mind that we’re going to continue to monitor this, and we’ll see a 30- to 40-percent chance for showers through the morning.”

By Wednesday afternoon we’ll be cloudy with temps in the upper-60s. A line of showers developing west of Austin could make its way to Houston by mid-afternoon.

Thursday the sun starts to return with a daytime high in the mid-60s. Friday things start heating up again, leading us into a warm and sunny weekend.

Our next big chance for rain could come as early as next Monday or Tuesday.
