31-year-old East TX woman poses as high school student

Happy Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A 31-year-old woman enrolled as a sophomore at an East Texas high school is in jail this morning.  See her for yourself and hear how she got away with the enrollment since March.

*In Baton Rouge today, education is front and center, along with equal pay for equal work and more talk about abortion restrictions.  We'll have the rundown of what's in store as this session begins to wind down.

*Gulf fishermen will face a shorter than ever red snapper season starting next month.  Find out where the rule applies and how many days have been cut off the season.

*Time is running out to file your state income taxes.  Today is the deadline to file your 2013 tax return.  We'll tell you why it's best to file, even if you cannot pay the money immediately.

*The Sulphur High School choir is waking up early with Sunrise today to give a sneak preview of their upcoming concert.  You don't want to miss their performances in our 6:00 hour.

*Our temperatures this morning are hovering near a record low.  Will we break it?  Meteorologist Ben Terry has the cool forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    A few showers possible Monday for the eclipseA few showers possible Monday for the eclipse

    Overnight, we will have clouds clear and will become mostly clear. Temperatures will slowly fall to the mid 70s. It will feel very warm due to the humidity. Heat indices will be in the 80s, throughout the night. Monday, the day of the eclipse, there is just a 30% chance of rain, so we will most likely have a few clouds during the time of the eclipse. There could be a few showers around the peak of the eclipse, but more likely, at least some clouds.
