Thunderstorms expected in the Killeen area today could produce hail and damaging winds, according to a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Daniel Huckaby said there’s a “decent chance of rain” this morning that could potentially affect the morning commute, but the bulk of thunderstorms are expected to move through the area as the day progresses.

“Generally, from late morning into the afternoon hours we could see severe weather with this,” he said. “The main threat being large hail and damaging winds.”

Huckaby said heavy rain is expected through the afternoon, but with the recent dry conditions, there aren’t any major flooding issues expected with this system.

Temperatures are forecast to hover close to the lower 80s.

Showers are expected to begin tapering off around sunset, Huckaby said.

A slight chance of rain, 20 percent, is forecast for Friday.

The high is expected to be 85 and a low in the mid-60s.
