i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin.
one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. 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. 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. 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. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto.

some spots in some places that will get less but some places will get a decent amount. that's how it looks right u now. we have been showing the 9 -- right now. we have been showing the 90 degree shart because we have a lot more -- chart because we have a lot more 90 degrees days coming. it's going to be oppressive along with the heat. we will have heat advisories up for especially tomorrow. more on that in a minute. no heat advisory for today. it's going to get increasingly humid as that has risen up into the upper 60s in many spots. there are a few cool pockets remaining like taunton 59 and norwood 61. but that's just temporary because that he had little clearing overnight -- because they had a little clearing overnight. you can see most of cape cod is at 68 to 71. dew points climbed to 60. more humid than yesterday. it's not terribly uncomfortable. although it is classified as high humidity closer than new
of that. we get dew points of 70 to 74 and that's the kind of the air that's coming here and will be long lasting. so we will have extremely humid and oppressive here late today and tonight, tomorrow, and right on through saturday, sunday maybe a transition day. we will show you that shortly. high temperatures today around 81 to 84. and it's not going to be a beast day but there might be a bit -- beach day although there might be areas of sunshine. the skies will get darker so not a great beach and boating day. we have had lot of those so far but today won't be one. but look at the rain that's coming. it looks impressive and we may see the flashing white dots as lightning occurs. it's been quite a lot in the last few hours. this is bending in new england so we will have it coming up this afternoon. any sunshine disappearing this morning, i think the map is showing the rain coming in here early this afternoon in boston and i think it's going to come in earlier than that. the model is off by a couple hours. the way i see it right now.
comes in but there's a threat of scattered thunderstorms breaking out this afternoon after the main rain area goes by. so the model suggest over a half inch of rain and i think dined some areas could get a half inch but i think other areas will be cheated out like we have in the past not get all that much. so that's what we are looking at. weather bug temperatures in the 60s for the most part and fenway park temperatures going up around 77 this evening and rain should be gone so the game is on and it's going to be hot and sticky tomorrow around 90 degrees. a heat advisory is up for tomorrow from noon to 7 p.m. in eastern massachusetts because it's going to feel like 100 or so because you factor in the oppressive humidity above that 96 degrees and it makes it feel like 100 to 102. 90s through saturday. sunday is the transition day when we drop the temperature may go up to 90 and fall in the afternoon with the back door
