WEATHER Graphic

Weather fit for the first day of spring Wednesday will grace Killeen area residents.

Expect quiet, nice weather this coming week, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. Daytime temperatures will be seasonal, said meteorologist Patricia Sanchez.

Sunny skies and winds of only up to 10 mph will make for an enjoyable stretch, Sanchez said. High temperatures will start in the low 60s early in the week, working their way up to the low 70s.

The only chance for rain comes Friday, according to Sanchez. A 30 percent chance of precipitation is slated for the end of the week.

“Otherwise, it should be nice for everybody to enjoy,” Sanchez said.

Sunday is expected to have a high of 62 and a low of 40.

The high on Monday is expected to be 64 with a low of 44.

The forecast on Tuesday calls for a high of 65 with a low of 45.

Wednesday’s forecast calls for a high of 70 with a low of 49.

Stillhouse Hollow Lake’s water level sits at about normal elevation, and Belton Lake is about 1 foot above normal elevation, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website.
