Svere thunderstorms in Houston 6/3/2018

Strong storms erupted across southeast Texas Sunday night, causing power outages and flight delays.

According to the National Weather Service, severe weather with gusty winds and heavy rain pushed through counties northeast of Houston.

Forecasters say a weak, southward-moving cold front had been interacting with warmer, more unstable air from the north.

The Houston Chronicle reported that about 47,000 CenterPoint customers had lost power, mostly in areas north of Houston just before 10 o’clock Sunday evening.

At Bush Intercontinental Airport, storms had delayed several flights by 30 to 45 minutes.

Flight operations have now returned to normal with CenterPoint reporting about 45-hundred customers without lights, again primarily in North Houston—including parts of Spring and Kingwood.

The National Weather Service is reporting a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms today, mainly after 1 o’clock this afternoon.

Chances of rain are expected to go down the rest of the week but temperatures certainly won’t – with some areas dealing with temps in the mid-90s and heat index values upward of 105 degrees all week long.
