Good morning!

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

A new abortion law is set to take effect on Monday, but a ruling that could change that is expected today. A federal judge has asked both sides of the issue for an agreement that could let clinics stay open for a while. If they cannot agree, the judge will rule. We'll let you know what happens, and you can read more about it HERE.

The terror threat level in Great Britain has moved up to "severe." The Prime Minister says he'll introduce new laws to combat terror suspects, pledging to seize passports to fight what he calls an "extremist threat more dangerous than any previously seen."

It's one of the most common health condition for millions of us -- sinusitis. It can be treated with antibiotics, but when it comes to a chronic problem, surgery might be the answer. Today we'll show you a new, kinder, gentler procedure that can cut patients' pain and recovery time.

Plus, a baby has been reunited with his parents after being taken by a carjacker while the boy was sleeping.

Ben tells me we can look for temperatures to climb into the low 90s this afternoon, ahead of some scattered showers and thunderstorms. Our chance of rain starts out at about 40 percent, but look for that to increase late tonight as we gear up for a whole lot of rain on Saturday. Just what can we expect for his Labor Day holiday weekend? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. You can also check out current weather conditions HERE.

And we have a reason to always check out your spare room – one woman didn't go in hers for months, and when she did, she was greeted by THOUSANDS of wasps! They turned her bed into a massive nest! Wow! Check out the big wasp room HERE.

Remember, if you're away from the TV watch us live at http://bit.ly/1lCk0p5 or through the KPLC News and Weather apps for Apple or Android devices.

Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!
