Winter is still making its presence known in Central Texas, as a winter weather advisory was issued by the National Weather Service for the Killeen area for much of this morning.

"You have a little bit of sleet moving through right now," Jason Godwin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Dallas/Fort Worth, said. "I wouldn't be surprised if you saw a few snowflakes mixed in."

Godwin said the sleet and snow was expected to finish moving through the area around 1 p.m., leaving a "cold, cloudy, breezy day" in its wake.

Today's high temperature is only expected to reach 40 degrees, and the low tonight is expected to reach 29 degrees, meaning area residents should prepare for a freeze.

"Protect your pets, plants and pipes," Godwin said. "Also, the wind chill will make it feel like the low to mid 20s tonight."

The rest of the week is expected to see the temperatures steadily increase, with temperatures reaching a high of 78 degrees on Thursday.

Monday is expected to be a mostly sunny 54 degrees, while rain chances are forecast for Tuesday night, Wednesday, Friday night and Saturday, according to Godwin.
