There is a small chance that storms will pass over the Killeen area this afternoon, but they are more likely to hit to the north and west of the city, according to the National Weather Service in Dallas/Fort Worth.

"There is a low chance (20 percent) of getting thunderstorms," meteorologist Jason Godwin said. "If we do see any, it is going to be in the late afternoon, and the storms will probably pass through an area in 30 minutes to one hour."

If storms do occur, the biggest dangers would be the potential for "gusty winds" and small hail. However, the chances of hail are small even if a storm does form.

"If a storm does form, you might get about a half-inch of rain in specific areas, but not much more than that," Godwin said.

The chance of rain will stay the same for most of Thursday, rising to 30 percent in the late afternoon. There is a slight chance of severe thunderstorms Thursday afternoon, though the storms will again stay mostly to the north of the Killeen area, according to Godwin.
