Looks like we only have two days with a chance of rain this week. That would be Wednesday and Thursday a 30 percent chance of a shower or thunderstorm popping up in the afternoons.  

Otherwise fair to partly sunny skies will be the rule for the week ahead with high temperatures in the low to mid-80s.

It looks a little cooler from Oct. 4-10 with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac shows Oct. 25 as the average date of the first frost in Panola County. I should be able to alert you a week or two before the frost, and will keep you posted

 October is usually our driest month of the year and unless we get a tropical system that comes out of the Gulf there is usually not much moisture available with any front that would drop down from Canada. If you have a weather question, you can reach me anytime at weather1@charter.net
