Residents in the Killeen area will not have to worry about the affects of Hurricane Irma.

Much of the country may get doused as the system works its way from Florida to the Great Lakes this week.

It may be two weeks until there is any measurable rain in the Killeen area.

Meteorologist Jennifer Dunn from the Fort Worth National Weather Service said temperatures will start out in the mid- to upper 80s Sunday and Monday and rise to 94 by Thursday.

“There should not be any rain as we stay on the west side of Hurricane Irma,” Dunn said Saturday. “There is not much chance of rain in the next 10 to 14 days. But that could change.”

Daytime lows this week should be 58 to 76 degrees. That is slightly lower than the average temperatures for September, which are usually in the mid- to upper-60s.

The average temperature for the second week of September is in the low 90s.

“There is not a lot to talk about weather wise in the next couple of weeks,” Dunn said. “There is a system 14 days out that could produce some rain.”

The Killeen area had a trace of rain Tuesday, but that was the only measurable rain in September. | 254-501-7464
