WATCH LIVE ON 7NEWS SUNRISE: McNeese Homecoming Parade

SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) - Good Morning. John and Britney here with a look at what's coming up on 7News Sunrise.

The fate of the USS Orleck is unknown. The 71-year-old ship needs support, both in volunteers and financially.

A Lake Area family is giving the term "Keeping up with the Joneses" a whole new meaning. KPLC's Candy Rodriguez will show us just how they're doing that with Halloween decorations.

Plus, it's hard to find a tourist brochure on New Orleans that doesn't have a picture of a historic Saint Charles Avenue Streetcar. Dave McNamara takes us for a ride that's full of history in the Heart of Louisiana.

And today marks one of the most exciting days of the year for McNeese Cowboys fans! It's Homecoming Parade day and we have all the information you need to know to catch the parade and the huge fireworks show.

In weather, a weak disturbance will move west across the northern Gulf of Mexico Thursday and this will bring a few more clouds across the area. However, the chance of rain looks very limited. A few very isolated showers may develop in the afternoon hours, but these will not amount to very much. Afternoon highs will top out in the low 80s and heat indexes will reach the mid 80s. Meteorologist Ben Terry will have more coming up in your 'First Alert Forecast.'

Remember, if you are not near a TV this morning, you can watch us live on the desktop or your smartphone.
