Preliminary storm reports from the National Weather Service in Dallas-Fort Worth noted severe hail across North Texas from Sunday’s storms.

Although a cold front from the north moved into the area overnight, the storm did not reach the Killeen area.
Lampasas, Coryell and Bell counties are included in the hazardous weather warning issued at 7:38 a.m. this morning by the National Weather Service.
The warning will remain in affect with expected thunderstorm chances to return Friday and Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.
The warning also noted that there is the potential for strong to severe storms across the three local counties, but today is forecasted to reach a high of 74 degrees and a low of 46 expected tonight.
