Temperatures are expected to hover in the 30s and 40s this weekend, and Killeen may see sleet Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

A cold front was expected to hit early this morning, and “temperatures are going to continue to drop throughout the day,” with a low of 39 degrees late today, said Nick Hampshire, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

The cold front will continue through Sunday when “sleet mixed with rain” is expected, Hampshire said.

The low Saturday is expected to be 34 degrees, with a temperature high of 40.

The low Sunday will be 35, with a high of 43, according to the National Weather Service.

For some Central Texas companies, this type of cold weather represents a shift in business.

“It’s actually going to help our trees lose their leaves,” said JT Haun, owner of Greenleaf Landscape & Garden Center in Harker Heights.

The company is beginning to get calls from customers who need their trees trimmed or their irrigation systems winterized.

Haun said he expects more calls after this weekend.

“Tree transplantation is also big this time of year,” he said.

Temperatures are expected to return to normal after the weekend.

“Things will warm up on Monday,” Hampshire said.

On Thanksgiving Day, Killeen weather is expected to be sunny, with a high near 60.
