Community members go in-and-out of H-E-B bundled up in jackets for the cold weather on Monday, Oct. 15, 2018 following the cold front that came into the area the night before.

While the fall season is in full swing, it’s going to feel more like winter for the rest of the week.

The National Weather Service is reporting chilly winds, thunderstorms and low temperatures with little to no sun throughout the week.

“It’s going to be cool and rainy for the whole week. It will slowly warm up throughout the week, not a whole lot, but a few degrees a day,” National Weather Service meteorologist Cory Van Pelt said.

There is a 70 percent chance of rain on Tuesday with a high of 49 degrees and a low of 47. Tuesday night the rain possibilities drop to 40 percent. The winds also are expected to blow between 15 to 20 miles per hour with gusts of 25 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service said.

Going into Wednesday the temperatures will rise just a tad with a high of 56 degrees and a low of 50 degrees while on Thursday the high is 60 and the low is 56.

“We have a chance of rain through the week. We’ll see very little sun,” Van Pelt said.

The colder temperatures and rain are due to a cold front that made it’s way into the area Sunday night, he said.

This is the second cold front within the last week.

“It’s just a piece of cold air that broke off out in Canada. It’s typical this time of year, but the temperatures are colder than they usually are in October,” Van Pelt said. “The cold front isn’t unusual though.”
