BATON ROUGE - About one-thousand customers were without electricity Sunday morning after overnight storms rolled through the city.

Outages were scattered and clusters impacted as many as 50 to 100 people in some isolated areas.  Entergy said it was hoping to restore most people by lunch Sunday afternoon.

Storms sparked an impressive lightning show in the night sky Saturday night. 

WBRZ meteorologists warned people of lightning strikes in their weekend blog post.  Similar weather is expected Sunday.  Monday, will be less sunny.  Chief forecaster Pat Shingleton wrote in his blog, relief from oppressive summer weather won't arrive until the end of September.
