WEATHER

Cooler, wet weather is expected to continue into next week with high temperatures in the low to mid-90s and more rain for the first part of the week, the National Weather Service in Fort Worth said. 

This evening into the first part of the week is expected to produce rain in the Killeen area.

“Monday night, into Tuesday could produce heavy rains,” Juan Hernandez from the National Weather Service said Saturday morning. “Anyone driving Monday night or Tuesday morning needs to be careful driving through puddles.”

There is a 70 percent chance of rain Monday and 80 percent chance Tuesday. Rain should lessen later in the week with chances of rain beginning Thursday at 20 to 30 percent.

On Wednesday, the National Weather Service reported one-tenth of an inch of rain in the Killeen area. Drizzle was reported on Thursday and Friday.

The average high temperature for Killeen in the first week of August is 98 degrees. Sunday should be close to that figure at 97 degrees, but high temperatures the remainder of the week will top out at 94 degrees.
