Good morning!

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

If you've been monitoring kplctv.com you've been able to see a live press conference by the FBI about a fugitive wanted for the sexual assault and murder of a Lake Charles woman in 2008. Officials say 25-year-old Jose Manuel Garcia-Guevara has been named to the FBI's 10 "Most Wanted" List. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt is there and will have a live update for us at noon.

Also today, we'll tell you about Pinnacle Entertainments intention to sell the Ameristar Casino Hotel Project here in Lake Charles. What prompted the decision? Find out at noon.

Something new for Beatles lovers. Drummer Ringo Starr has a new exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. We'll go on a tour.

Plus, one non-profit group partners with a bionics company to provide a remarkable technology that helps paralyzed veterans walk again.

In weather, Ben tells me your work week begins with lots of warmth and humidity. Rain chances are pretty low, but the tropics are beginning to get our notice. There's something brewing off the coast of the southern Yucatan Peninsula, so if you're set for a vacation in Mexico you could be in for a bumpy stay. Ben will have all the details during his live, local forecast and you can always access current conditions and tropical information HERE.

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

    Rain chances increase MondayRain chances increase Monday

    By tonight, rain chances will be low. We will start with partly cloudy skies, becoming mostly clear late. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s. A few places north of I-10 will be in the 60s. It will still feel muggy overnight, thanks to the humidity. There could be some areas of patchy fog in the early morning hours on Monday. As we go through next week, the big story remains warm temperatures.
