While Bell County did not see the worst of Hurricane Harvey, residents did experience consistent rain showers over the weekend as the area received nearly 2 inches of rain.

Temperatures have remained lower than typical late-summer Texas heat as highs were mostly in the low to mid-80s.

That trend will continue this week as today’s projected high is expected to be about 83 degrees with a 20 percent chance of rain. Tonight, rain chances increase to 30 percent with the temperature in the low 70s, according to the National Weather Service.

Killeen police spokeswoman Ofelia Miramontez said 55 traffic incidents were reported Saturday and Sunday but did not specify how many were weather related.

On Wednesday, rain chances increase to about 40 percent. High temperatures will remain in the low 80s. Wednesday evening temperatures are expected to drop to 70 degrees.

The National Weather Service also predicted Killeen could see about another half-inch of rain over the next two days.

On Thursday, rain chances will be 30 percent with highs around 85 degrees by midday. Lows Thursday evening are expected to be about 69 degrees.
