Good morning!

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

Our big news today deals with the weather. In fact, Ben has been on air all morning with radar updates. He tells me some locations this morning picked up over 2.5 inches of rain with more pouring in with additional showers and storms. He's tells me some of those storms are capable of producing heavy downpours and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning strikes. Things don't look like they'll change by tomorrow, so be sure to catch Ben's live, local forecast at noon and you can always access the latest weather information HERE – 24 hours a day. 

Meanwhile, residents here in Louisiana are bracing for a rate increase when it comes to their flood insurance. However, our state lawmakers are working to fight the hike. We'll explain what they're doing up on Capitol Hill today.

Also today, one Texas homeowner receives quite the unusual, and unwelcome, guests. We're checking out her backyard visitors.

Plus, two large diamonds are expected to break world records next month. We'll get an up-close look at the sparkly gems.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. In fact, click HERE and you can see how to tap into the latest in news and weather events like we're experiencing today. We hope you join us at noon – be safe out there!

    Tonight, it should be another nice, yet warm evening. Any clouds we see today will clear away around sunset, and the rain chances go back to zero tonight. The temperatures will be fairly warm. They should not cool out of the 70s in most places. Especially near the coastline. North of I-10 has a chance to too the upper 60s, but it will still be warm. This will start off with more hot and humid conditions. There will likely be plenty of clouds every now and then.
