HOUSTON -- As we head into the evening we are expected to see a few lingering showers north of town,” KHOU 11 News Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman said.

“The showers should taper off around 10 p.m.,” he said.

Thunderstorms created some flight delays and left some people without power.

Darian Ward, with the Houston Airport System, advised passengers to call their airlines in advance.

About 5,000 people were without power around 6 p.m.

More rain is expected on Wednesday, which is the official first day of summer. We’ll see temperatures begin in the mid-70s and then increase to the upper 80s.

“On Wednesday the best rain chances will be west of Interstate 45, we’re holding on to about a 30-percent chance of showers,” Norman said.  “The seven-day forecast shows rain chances drop out by the end of the week as temperatures start to go up.”
