Join us for your Isaac update Live at Noon

Good morning everyone! Hope all is well as we watch for the effects of Isaac.

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom as we prepare for today's 7News@Noon.

Ben is in the weather center continually now and is telling me we can expect an increase in the winds this afternoon and evening. Look for between 20 and 40 mph with higher gusts in southwest Louisiana. As far as the rain is concerned, he tells me we could get up to 6 inches of rain thru Friday. Power outages are likely, we've already seen some in Allen and Vernon parishes, and the increasing wind speeds could prompt even more.

At noon, we'll have a live update from Cameron Parish. The Cameron Parish OEP continues to serve as a round-the-clock monitoring system with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Army National Guard watching Isaac's every move.

We'll also show you how barges are seeking safe haven at the West Calcasieu Port.

We are keeping in contact with local power companies and parish leaders – so stay tuned for the latest updates on conditions in your area. Right now you can check on important announcements HERE, and storm info HERE.

Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you have a safe day as the storm approaches.

    By sunset this evening the temperatures will start to go down and rain will come to an end. Overnight we will be left with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. Rain chances are down to 20% overnight. On Monday will have rain chances go back down to 30%. The same upper level high pressure will be migrating back south closer to our area and will limit, but not quite eliminate, our rain chances. Rain chances are best in the afternoon.
