Way to Geaux App helping drivers navigate

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in tonight for Cynthia. Here's a look at what we are working for Nightcast.

It may be one of the busiest travel days of the year, but Louisiana residents can stay up to date on all traffic situations. KPLC's Haley Rush shows you how the "Way to Geaux" App works.

And a big announcement by Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon regarding the Affordable Health Care Act.

Also, a new program in the town of Welsh is going above and beyond for its senior citizens. KPLC's Erica Bivens explains how a phone call a day is making a big difference.

Plus, burning brush is common for most people this time of year – but there are serious health risks involved. KPLC's Britney Glaser tells you about the signs and not so obvious dangers in tonight's Healthcast.

We'll see you tonight at Ten for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.

    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!
