Showers and thunderstorms are sweeping across the Metroplex, bringing lots of rain to the area.

NBCDFW Chief Meteorologist David Finfrock said in his updated weather forecast that:

Some lingering rain will continue overnight and through Wednesday morning. Skies should begin to clear by Wednesday afternoon or evening. But chilly temperatures will remain for several days, with frost likely by Friday and Saturday mornings.

Some flights were delayed out of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport because of weather conditions, according to the FAA's automated information systems.

Investigators say lightning may have caused a house fire in Southlake. A $2.2 million home owned by George and Jan Grubbs, who once owned several car dealerships, sustained significant damage in the blaze.

The rain could have affected Tuesday's midterm elections. Traditionally, bad weather leads to lower voter turnout. See our election coverage on our Decision 2010 page.

Organizers for the Dallas County Democratic Party moved its watch party into American Airlines Center because of the weather.
