WEATHER

It will finally feel like fall starting on Tuesday into Wednesday in the Killeen area.

A system will go through the area late Monday with a 20 to 40 percent chance of rain.

The storm front will drop temperatures into the 70s Tuesday and into the low 50s Wednesday morning.

“Not everyone will experience the rain, but residents will notice it is much cooler starting Tuesday,” National Weather Service meteorologist Lamont Vain said. “It will be nice ... but somewhat temporary.”

The average high for Killeen the second week of October is a daytime high of 83 degrees.

But it will only be temporary, according to Vain.

“Thursday will jump back into the mid 80s and the upper 80s for the weekend,” Vain said. “We will notice lower humidity during this time.”

Sunday, the temperatures will creep into the lower 90s, and Monday the Killeen area should be around 93 degrees before the cool front moves in later in the day.

The Central Texas area has experienced just over half an inch of precipitation since Oct. 1.
