Arthur now a hurricane, Bourbon St. suspect surrenders, baby in hot car

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

*Breaking news from overnight: Arthur has now been upgraded to a hurricane - the first one of the Atlantic hurricane season. We'll take you to the East Coast to see how people are preparing for Arthur's impact this holiday weekend.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us our weather is looking a little nicer for the July 4th holiday. When you walk outside this morning, you'll notice lower humidity and lower temperatures. Find out about the rain chances for your outdoor festivities tomorrow.

*The person of interest in last weekend's now deadly shooting on Bourbon Street in New Orleans has surrendered to police. We'll tell you the charges this young man now faces in the aftermath of the shootings that injured ten people, killing one.

*Another dangerous reminder about the heat after a baby in Louisiana is found alone in a hot car. Hear how the baby is doing today and what the mother is saying about why the baby was in the hot car.

*Teachers may have the summer off, but that doesn't mean they've stopped working. Literacy, numeracy and technology are the themes for the 2014 McNeese Teaching and Learning Conference. We'll have a live interview with Dr. Debbie King in our 6:00 hour.

Make it a Sunrise day!
