Because of the economy's close link with Fort Hood, Copperas Cove is a part of the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood Metropolitan Statistical Area. The city has been inhabited by mankind at least since 4,000 B.C. given the artifacts found along local valley floors and creek beds. The area is located in the Lampasas Cut Plains within a number of hills known as the "Five Hills" area between Lampasas River and Cowhouse Creek valleys. Copperas Cove's climate has attracted many residents to the area with its humid subtropical tendencies, giving it easy winters and sunshine-drenched summers. The city does find itself within Tornado Alley, but conversely the land is surprisingly suitable for agriculture without irrigation, making up for the likelihood of tornado touchdowns.
