Monday might have been muggy and slightly moist, but it may be a while before any real rain falls in Central Texas.

The skies teased the Killeen area Monday morning, offering just enough moisture to dampen the streets. Clouds with a gloomy pallor hung around all day, but with little rain to offer.

The rain in Waco registered only 0.03 inch. Measurements for Killeen and Fort Hood were unavailable. The area is still roughly 10 inches behind in rainfall for the season.

KCEN-TV meteorologist Andy Andersen said no rain is forecast for the immediate future.

Its got to come some time, but theres nothing on the horizon, he said.

A little additional moisture sweeping through the area will bring cooler temperatures, though. There could be a freeze tonight, with a low of 25 to 30 degrees Wednesday morning, Andersen said. Temperatures could dip again on Saturday and Sunday as well. But the area isnt likely to see any extreme cold.

As long as the winds keep blowing like they are, it will keep it from getting too cold, he said.

As for rain, Andersen said well probably see it in the next six to eight weeks, but thats based more on a gut instinct than anything else.
