Dry conditions still continue. Here in West Frankfort yesterday, we just got enough rain to settle the dust.  The southeast side of the county received a half-inch of rain in places, around Sesser to the northwest, there was about a quarter of an inch.  This information is from the National Weather Service in Paducah.

Earlier in the week, it looked like that showers and thunderstorms would possibly hamper the Friday Night Lights.  That is not the case now.  Going into week seven, there has not been any weather interruptions this season.

There is a tropical depression that is forming in the Gulf of Mexico at this time.  If it intensifies, we will share information as there are a lot of people that vacation there in this area.
