WEATHER

The weekend’s wind gusts are expected to blow through the week, but rain chances will evaporate.

That is, until Friday.

The National Weather Service predicts a fairly dry week, but conditions may change by the weekend.

The Killeen area saw up to about three-fourths of an inch of rain late Friday evening, and that trend could continue for the foreseeable, future, according to meteorologist Daniel Huckaby.

“It’s become sort of a tradition this month to have severe weather Friday and a cool weekend,” Huckaby said. “That’s coming this week as well — potential for storms and maybe severe Friday with a cold front coming through.”

The potential for grass fires is present with the whipping wind, according to NWS, chances that are only increased by a potentially dry week ahead.

Temperatures will stay around the low to mid-80s, according to NWS.

Monday’s high is expected to be 79 with a low of 55.

Tuesday’s forecast calls for a high of 84 with a low of 61.

Wednesday is expected to have a high of 81 and a low of 54.

Thursday’s forecast calls for a high of 78 with a low of 59.

Stillhouse Hollow Lake’s water level is 4 feet below normal elevation, and Belton Lake is about 2 feet below normal, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website.
