we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto . xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding.
12:16 pm

12:17 pm
we can file this day under looks can be deceiving. >> the calm before the storm. the sunshine giving way to the clouds. that's the leading edge, the first sign. the blizzard warning is in effect. when people hear that word blizzard, they're thinking monster snow. really it has a lot more to do with the winds and the visibility and the danger of the storm. so that's why we're emphasizing less travel is a better decision for tomorrow. 28 degrees, below freezing in central park. north winds 7 to 17 miles per hour. pressure on the rise. as we get into this evening, not only do we have clouds in place as a signal of the storm,
12:18 pm
up and we will start to see flurries late tonight, and by snow. overnight. we finish tab. here is what you need to know about the winter storm. accumulations in new jersey starting by midnight, new york city accumulations 4:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. waking up tomorrow, following the symptoms, we'll already have some on the ground for parts of the area. the blizzard time period is 11:00 a.m. what. that means is winds sustained at 35 miles per hour, low visibilities for a period of the afternoon, then we also will have very strong wind gusts, up to 50 miles per hour in the city, 65 at the coastline. the biggest impact is central and southern new jersey but erosion a major concern. these will be the highest tides we've seen since superstorm sandy so another test of the jersey shoreline.
12:19 pm
already the storm reports, little rock, arkansas, seven inches produced from this storm. that's the most that they've had in 20 years, just crushing a record. look how fast things are moving through richmond, virginia, and the clouds and the snow approaching the d.c. area for the afternoon commute. that's one of the reasons that we sped things up. we were thinking maybe we would wait until the sun came up to see the snow but it's coming in quite quickly. so we go from clouds increasing to flakes flying. accumulations for south jersey after midnight. by 7:00 a.m. we will have had snow falling by about an hour or two. 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., these bright dark blues showing up between noon and 4:00 p.m., these dark circles, it will be heavy bands where we could see snowfall rates up to two inches per hour, then a lot of blowing snow. that could disrupt some of the
12:20 pm
but everything clears out early sunday. the futurecast winds also show around the same time, between noon and 6:00 p.m., how the winds pick up 50, even sit, perhaps 65-mile-per-hour winds. that's what's going to create the coastal flooding impact. the snowfall flooding forecast. sullivan, ulster, and dutchess just as a precaution. three to six inches takes us from new york back to northwest new jersey along 95. then six inches to a foot areas in white. in and around the city we may have a range just in the boroughs from what we see in staten island to what we sib manhattan. parts of connecticut will get that backlash of the snow. so it actually comes in a couple of pieces of accumulation. first the early part of the storm, then a heavier hit in the afternoon, then it's all out of here by sunday morning. we'll see quick exit. very cold afternoon on sunday.

12:44 pm
if you haven't been lifting heavy snow, you do need to be careful. >> this is a storm that has such intense wind that you may want to be careful deciding to go out in the storm. when you get a 50 miles per hour wind that's affecting trees, power lines. and down the should, 65-mile- per-hour winds. so trying to clean up might be a complicating factor. 28 degrees in central park. plenty of cold air in the area. the storm makes its way in our direction for the rest of this afternoon. we're staying below freezing. winds turning out of the north- northeast. we see a few clouds. blizzard warnings for areas in orange. that includes long island, all five boroughs. we also have the winter storm warning for areas in pink. further to the north less snow, less of the blizzard conditions that we're expecting. then we also have the coastal
12:45 pm
effect as the high tides come in. that's until sunday. we really have to watch the early high tides on saturday and saturday night. snow does begin in south jersey. accumulations are expected by dawn. we'll have snow on the ground by the time the sun comes up. quarter mile visibility, dangerous driving conditions, blowing snow during that time period, and that will be afternoon until 9:00. then coastal flooding, plus the full moon, plus the storm. so that spells a lot of trouble. folks what live down the shore, and you've been through nor'easters, a reminder, this is the first tide that's been as high -- or it's the highest tide that we've seen since superstorm sandy. so something you haven't seen since superstorm sandy came through. a comma shape on the radar. look at the timing.
12:46 pm
already it's approaching d.c. and the delmarva. by the time we get into the commute they've got snow. by 6:00 a.m. show becomes spread across the area so waking up with accumulations, then snow throughout the day tomorrow. it looks like the most intense bands are going to come in midafternoon. noon to 8:00 p.m. you should be ready. everything clears out sunday morning. sunshine greeting us by the end of sunday. on the snowfall forecast here, the lesser amounts are up in the hudson valley. northwest new jersey. just north of new york interest the suburbs, the storm wraps around. that's probably where we'll get the heavier totals, near bridge port. white. for the boroughs, we could have some boroughs getting the higher end of this range, then
12:47 pm
of the range. 8 to 10 inches for long island seems realistic. here's your accuweather seven- day forecast. over the weekend we've got the store. monday not as cold, 38, more melting tuesday and wednesday. just worthy of a mention here, the winds that we're expecting on saturday will be gusting above 50 miles per hour, but they will be sustained for a long period of time also, and that's a problem. when you have a wind for a lengthy amount of time, that's going to blow around a lot of snow. sort of makes the totals seems less important and more importantly avoiding the conditions and staying off the roads. another big heads-up to the coastal locations. know your high tides, be aware, check in with your neighbors. the coastline was forever changed with sandy. so you think you know your
12:48 pm
