Nasty and raw

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Well, I'm hoping you're staying dry and warm. It's yet another wet, dreary and now cold day. Ben tells me we can expect scattered showers with some brief heavier downpours.   Temperatures overnight should stay above freezing in our immediate area. What about tomorrow and the rest of the week? Will this nasty, raw weather continue? Ben's working on his live, local forecast right now, so be sure to tune in at noon. In the meantime, you can always access weather information HERE.

Also today, this year's flu season has health officials warning parents to be vigilant. We'll have advice on symptoms moms and dads need to watch for in their child.

Meanwhile, there may be a new way to detect other cancers thru pap smears. You can learn why researchers are so hopeful in a report found HERE.

Plus, if you have cabin fever, you might have the urge to redecorate or perhaps shop for a new home. We'll give you a look at some new smart phone and tablet apps that give you the ability to re-design your home in the new year.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and be safe in all the wet, cold weather.

    Can traditional medicines that go to the root of Louisiana culture help beat modern illnesses? It all boils down to a bush - in particular, the groundsel bush.  Up until the early 20th century, this native shrub was an ingredient in folk remedies.
