If you planned on burning anything outdoors in the next few days, you’re going to have to reschedule that bonfire. A burn ban has been reinstated in Coryell County.

The outdoor burning ban imposed Dec. 11 was reinstated by Coryell County Judge John Firth, and will remain in effect until sunset Jan. 22, according to a news release.

The Commissioners’ Court will reassess the risk of a controlled burn after that date.

Winds could reach as high as 25 mph this week in the Killeen-Fort Hood area, according to the National Weather Service.

Thursday was partly sunny with a high of 64 degrees, a low of 31 and wind gusts as high as 40 mph, according to the NWS.

Those gusts dropped down to 25 mph Thursday night, and then stay between 5 and 15 mph during the day Friday.

But on Saturday, the sunny, 47-degree high day will be supplemented with winds as high about 20 mph, according to the NWS. Saturday’s low temperature will drop back down to about 25 degrees.

There are no chances of rain through the week, according to the NWS.
