It looks like area residents will get a slight break from the usual blistering summer heat this week, as a cold front is expected to roll across Central Texas, said Jesse Moore, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
On Monday and Tuesday, temperatures are expected to be in the mid- to upper 90s, before a cold front arrives toward the latter part of Tuesday evening.
“It’s not gigantic, but it’s expected to be in the mid-90s Tuesday and low to mid-90s Wednesday, Thursday and Friday,” Moore said.
There also is a slight chance of showers throughout the week, with a 20 percent chance of rain Tuesday and a 30 to 40 percent chance of rain Thursday.
Once Saturday gets here, temperatures should warm back up to the mid- to upper 90s again, Moore said.
