Athlete dies from drinking 'too much' water

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

It's the first day of school in Calcasieu Parish, so we will have reports from two of our reporters – Monica Grimaldo and Haley Rush – today at noon. They've been traveling to several schools in the area to get some of those “first day” moments. You can see more of those special moments HERE on our ViewerNet.

A Georgia high school football player is dead from apparently drinking too much water. We'll examine the dangers of "over" hydration. You can read more about it HERE.

Plus, hackers aren't just hiding in dark rooms with laptops waiting to steal your info. We'll show you what happens when an expert rigs a cat collar to collect wi-fi information.

Zach tells me we'll warm up to the 90s, but the lower humidity will make it feel much more pleasant. Tomorrow will be our "coolest" morning, but how long will this lovely pattern last? Check us out at noon for Zach's live, local forecast for the answer. You can also see the latest weather conditions HERE.

Remember, if you're away from the TV at noon you can always tune in to kplctv.com to watch us online and your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!

    A few scattered showers this afternoonA few scattered showers this afternoon

    We will start today with partly cloudy skies, building up for scattered thunderstorms later this afternoon. Rain chances are up to 40% today, so we should not see as much rain as yesterday. Most of the rain will come to an end by the late afternoon. After sunset, rain chances will go back down to zero percent overnight with mostly clear skies. In between any showers, we will have warm temperatures for southwest Louisiana.
