Thunderstorms are expected to pass over the Killeen-Fort Hood area this afternoon producing hail and damaging winds, according to a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. Jennifer Dunn said the area also will likely be under a tornado watch.

“It looks like hail, damaging winds and lightning will be the main threat, but there is a chance for an isolated tornado anytime there is this type of set-up,” she said.

Dunn said the most the severe storms are expected in the afternoon, but it could carry over into the evening. She said temperatures are expected to linger around 71 degrees.

A front is expected to push through the area tonight, dropping the temperatures to about 50 degrees. A 20 percent chance of showers is expected Sunday, but Dunn said it won’t be severe weather. Temperatures will be about 60 degrees with winds out of the north, northwest at 15 to 25 mph. The low Sunday night is 35.

Dunn said the “roller coaster of temperatures” will continue into early next week: Monday’s expected to be sunny with a high near 66 degrees and a low 46 degrees. Temperatures will warm up into the low 80s Tuesday, Dunn said. | 254-501-7555
