Gators flock to neighborhoods!

Good morning!

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

The Supreme Court is taking up a new case involving religion and government. It involves a dispute over prayers used to open meetings. Look for more at noon on this, or you can read more about the case HERE.

Also today, it may not be too late to get into shape for the summer. We'll show you a non-invasive method for toning up the tummy.

While you're  checking your tummy ladies, have you checked the state of your purse lately? Did you know that a woman's handbag may contain more germs than the average toilet flush?  Yep, its true so we'll have some handy dandy tips to keep the germs at bay.

Plus, a 92-year-old Navy veteran had the opportunity to live out a dream. He may be wheelchair bound, but he got his wish to do something he waited his entire life to do – fly fishing!

In weather, Ben tells me today should be a lot like yesterday. We'll have a sun/cloud mix and afternoon highs in the upper 80's, but the heat index will make it feel like the low 90's. By tomorrow a chance of rain enters the forecast, but how much of a chance? You can get the answer to that and other weather questions  during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

The spring weather means lots of animal activity… and you'd be surprised at the number of alligators flocking to neighborhoods. In one area, wildlife agents are getting as many as five calls a day! Check out that story HERE.

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

    Nice day, despite the clouds on WednesdayNice day, despite the clouds on Wednesday

    Tonight, skies will be clear and we will have little to no chance for rain. Tonight will be much cooler. We had a cold front come through early this morning and that decreased the dew point and cleared the sky of any clouds. This will allow temperatures to fall. South of I-10 will be in the mid to upper 30s, while north of I-10 will be in the freezing temperatures. As we go through this week, the weather will be nothing less than perfect!
