Sunrise crew goes red for National Wear Red Day

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

*Today is National Wear Red Day to bring attention to the number one killer of women: heart disease.  Our Sunrise crew is wearing red and the Southwest Louisiana chapter of the American Heart Association is hoping you'll go red today, too!

*President Obama will sign the farm bill into law today.  We'll tell you how it will affect the food stamp program and cash subsidies for farmers.

*New polling shows an ongoing shift when it comes to illegal immigration.  Find out what Americans are saying about the pathway to citizenship.

*McNeese State University will hold a free lecture about Mardi Gras, Shakespeare, Spenser and Milton in 19th century New Orleans.  It's happening tonight and we'll tell you how you can be a part of it.

*Looking for something unique to do this weekend?  The zombie apocalypse will have people running for their lives tomorrow at Camp Edgewood!  Runners will have a belt of flags and run through zombie filled woods trying to escape. 

*Outdoor guide Hal McMillin is joining us this morning to talk about Sportsman's Paradise!  From snow goose hunting to getting your gear ready for spring fishing - he'll have the information you need to enjoy the great outdoors.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry says we've got a bitterly cold morning in store - and rain chances are on the increase this weekend.  He'll have your pinpoint forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    For the rest of the day, there will be more storms and showers that pop up in the afternoon. This is the new normal with the heat during the afternoon, and the extra moisture in the air. Not everyone will see rain, but if you are caught under one of these showers, you will likely see some heavy rainfall at times. Temperatures will still be hot today, especially where there is no rain. Highs will be in the lower 90s. Tonight, the rain should come to an end.
