Good morning!

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

The 2 month legislative session kicks off at noon in Baton Rouge today.  The Governor is expected to address both the House and Senate at 1.   We'll have a preview of what lawmakers will be debating during the session.

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died of a stroke.  The 87 year old had retired from public engagements in 2002 following a series of small strokes.  We'll have a look back on her legendary life at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, they've been together for 65 years and now as she enters care for Alzheimer's, we'll see the heartwarming gift her husband gave her to keep her comfortable.

Plus, it's something most of us do every night before going to bed – charging our cell phones.   However, some firefighters in Missouri say "where" you charge your cell phone could be dangerous.

In weather, Ben says we can expect some clouds mixed with sun today and tomorrow as afternoon highs rise to nearly 80 degrees.  Humidity levels will continue to climb as well.  I'm also hearing that rain chances will be creeping into our forecast in a couple of days.  What exactly can we expect this week?   Tune in for Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air.   We hope you join us, and have a great day.
