Good Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A body found west of Lafayette in Iberville Parish has State Police investigating a possible homicide.  The man was found in a sugarcane field between Rosedale and Grosse Tete.

*There's another threat looming of winter weather for Southwest Louisiana.  Meteorologist Ben Terry says the entire Gulf Coast is under a watch today.  Find out when we could possibly see an accumulation of ice and snow.

*Sergeant James Anderson with Louisiana State Police Troop D is joining us in our 6:30 half hour to talk about what's being done to prepare for possibly dangerous weather conditions Tuesday and Wednesday.  He'll also tell us the overall impact of last week's winter weather.

*We're opening up the Sunrise Pet Shop this morning to introduce you to a furry friend in need of a home.  We'll also talk about what you need to keep your pets healthy during cold blasts.

Make it a Sunrise day!
