Tuesday morning got off to a damp start for Central Texas residents, who have to brace for colder weather today.

Temperatures on Tuesday night were predicted to drop to the mid-30s, according to a forecast from the National Weather Service.

Those cold temperatures are expected to continue today.

The forecast calls for a steady daytime temperature about 34 degrees with a 40 percent chance of showers before noon.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a low about 30 with no rain expected.

Thursday is expected to be partly sunny with a high near 59.

Friday’s and Saturday’s forecasts call for sunny weather, with highs in the mid-60s and-70s.

While the weather is expected to clear up near the end of the week, National Weather Service meteorologist Jamie Gudmestad said there is a possibility for more cold weather.

“Winter isn’t over yet,” Gudmestad said. “Another cold snap is possible in March, so we’re not out of the woods just yet.”
