Much of Central Texas was under the threat of severe weather Saturday as a cold front moved through the area, but not much precipitation fell on the Killeen area.

More rain was possible in the area after midnight, but it was expected to move out this morning, followed by sunny skies, said Patricia Sanchez, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Today will be sunny, with the high near 72 degrees, Sanchez said. It will get windy during the day with gusts could get as high as 25 mph.

The sun is expected to stay out through Tuesday. On Monday, temperatures will reach 84 degrees, but winds might still be blowing around 20 mph. Tuesday will be even warmer, with an expected high of 86 degrees.

“We should stay dry at least through the middle of the week, and then we have a slight chance of rain Wednesday, then after that it’ll be dry again,” Sanchez said.

There’s a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday.

It will be mostly cloudy, but still warm. That will lead residents in the Greater Killeen area into two consecutive sunny days with temperatures in the mid- to upper 70s to round out the workweek.
