 Good Wednesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on a special edition of 7News Sunrise:

*I'll be hitting the road in a few minutes with KPLC's Erica Bivens to head to Booth's Grocery in Grand Chenier for a live broadcast of our This is Home Tour in Cameron Parish.  We have so much in store today and it's going to be a blast!

*Our live interviews in Cameron Parish include T-Mae Booth with Booth's Grocery, Megan Hartman with the SWLA Convention and Visitor's Bureau, Cameron Parish Administrator Ryan Bourriaque, Benny Welch and his alligator art and Judge Penelope Richard.

*Back in the studio, KPLC's Charlie Haldeman will be catching you up on today's top stories from school report cards to an update on Tuesday evening's stand-off in Moss Bluff.

*One big story we are following this morning is the search for a missing teen girl in Beauregard Parish.  We'll tell you where 15-year-old Dakota Schexnider was last seen and share her picture with you.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us cooler temperatures are going to stick around.  He'll talk about the latest cool front and tell us if there's any rain in the forecast as we look to the next seven days.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    For the rest today, the rain chances remain high at 70% through the afternoon. Most of the rain will be to our west over in Texas, and along the Sabine River. There will not be as much rain in places to our east. Parishes like Allen, and Jeff Davis may only see some drizzle and light rain at times. Western Cameron, Calcasieu, Beauregard, and western Vernon parishes will likely have more rain throughout the day. This will be mostly rain, with storms unlikely.
