Good morning!

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

Al Roker of the Today show was in our "neck of the woods" this morning. We'll bring you the sights and sounds of the big visit to the Carlyss Fire Station.

Also today, we'll tell you about a new scam that's targeting computer owners. Find out how you can avoid being the next victim.

Plus, a giant African land snail has been discovered in the backyard of a Houston home. Now researchers are sending out a warning about this disease-spreading parasite.

In weather, Ben tells me we'll have mainly cloudy skies today, with some showers around.  Tonight things will change – what will this mean for our weekend? Look for the answers during 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!

    The Saharan dust has diminished a lot more since yesterday and the particle numbers are down. We are still in a moderate zone, so you should still use caution if you have any allergies or breathing issues. Throughout the day, the clouds will be clearing, and the rain should stay away from us. There will still be a lot of humidity in place and hot temperatures.  By the afternoon, there should be lots of sunshine. That will increase the temperatures more.
