Get that air conditioner ready. There’s a hazardous weather outlook all along the Interstate 35 corridor, and the Killeen-area is included.
The National Weather Service said that heat index values will be between 100 and 108 degrees each afternoon from Sunday through Friday.
Temperatures Sunday will get up to 99 degrees, according to the NWS, and there will be a slight breeze of 5 to 10 miles per hour. Sunday night, those winds might reach 15 mph, and the temperature will drop to 77.
It’ll be mostly sunny until Friday.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will all have temperatures around 98 degrees, with the low hovering around 78. Thursday and Friday might see the thermometer reach 100 degrees, and the nights will be mostly clear with temperatures in the mid-70s.
There is a chance of thunderstorms through Tuesday, though severe weather is not expected. Any thunderstorms that do arrive will be isolated and scattered. NWS meteorologist Jason Godwin said that aside from the stray shower, nothing will significantly impact Killeen.
“The whole region is going to pretty much dry out for Monday, and pretty much for the rest of the week,” he said. “Fire potential should be on the lower side. Relative humidity will still be somewhat high for the time of year. That should keep the fire threat down.”
