As the storms rolled in Monday morning, the sky in Houston glowed red, purple and orange.

The bright sky surely had Prince lyrics stuck in many Houstonians' heads.

A severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for several counties including Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Waller, Walker and Grimes.

Early computer models showed the potential for 1-3 inches of rain, with a high of 6 inches possible in some spots.

But after a first band of storms fizzled out, all eyes were on the thunderstorms pushing out from the Victoria area.
