A spokesman from TXU Electric Delivery says high winds from fast-moving storms Sunday knocked out power to about 20-thousand
customers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
TXU's John Hardesty says the winds knocked down some power lines and it could take until mid-morning to restore power.
The National Weather Service says the storms helped end a streak of 19 straight days of triple-digit heat.
Yesterday's temperature peaked at 96 degrees. A cold front still is expected to push into Texas from Oklahoma.
In West Texas, forecasters call for a 70 percent chance of precipitation and a high in the low 80s today.
The chances of rain drop off in the Panhandle, Central Texas and along the Gulf Coast and Rio Grande Valley.
