Residents in the Killeen area can finally expect some fall weather for the middle of the week.

Wednesday, the sun will be out, but the temperature will hover in the mid-70s for the second day in a row. The high will be 76 degrees, and with a low of 59 degrees tonight.

Thursday will likely be the last of the cool weather for the week, according to the National Weather Service. It will be a bit warmer during the day, with temperatures around 85 degrees, but drop to 66 in the evening.

Friday and Saturday’s high temperatures will creep back up into the high 80s, while there is a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms on Sunday during both the day and the night, according to the weather service. That’s because the next cold front is coming through starting Sunday, according to meteorologist Daniel Huckaby.

“Typically, we’ve seen a cold front before now; it’s actually a little bit late for our first cold front,” he said.

If you were up and out of the door before 9 a.m. Tuesday, you were likely surprised by the cool weather that greeted you outside.

A light jacket could come in handy for the rest of the week.
