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 kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.

today's ridiculous out burst proves what i am saying for a long time that ted cruz does not have the temperament to be president of the united states. trump predicted he will take the hoosier state and lock in the nomination for u.s. president. and meanwhile the indiana primary is close for hillary clinton and bernie sanders. sanders touted his record on fighting big corporations for sending jobs overseas. >> senator clinton has supported almost everyone of these disastrous agreements, it's an area of strong disagreement that the voters of indiana and the voters of america have to consider. sanders took aim at donald trump saying the republican will not fight for working americans. >> hillary clinton spent much of the day in west virginia talking

vote can cast a ballot for whom ever they choose regardless of the political party. there are 57 delegates up for grabs be the contest is winner take most. and democrats are hoping for a strong showing, with 92 delegates up for grabs. and we'll keep a close eye on the indiana primaries, they close at 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. eastern.

these are the law. >> the main job of a booster is to elevate a child and help position the lap and shoulder belt so they are providing the best protection in a crash. >> studies show booster seats cut the risk of injury in a crash. safer car.gov has information and everything you need to know about booster seat and car seat safety. we put a link on 6abc.com. and we posted recommendations for car seats and booster seats and links for free car seat inspections. i'm nydia han, channel 6 "action news." acme pharmacies in pennsylvania are now selling narcan to the public with no prescription needed. the nasal spray they say saved thousands of patients. it's carried by police and

come in and be the starting quarterback with our group of players around him and hopefully win some games. >> hopefully bradford does not get "sports illustrated." there is the prize possession donning the regional cover. the bull's-eye the quarterback is out of fargo and into the philly fire. isn't that the truth. the nba draft lottery. coming up the sixers with probably the top pick. chris jenkins is coming back to villano villanova. he has withdrawn from nba draft consideration. jenkins pulled out for a number of reasons, he thinks the senior year will help in the long run if he want a shot at a long nba career. >> to come back and get better and grow as a basketball player and a leader to give himself a better chance.

philadelphia and not much of the way of any movement in the temperature department. the low 56 degrees and we only went up 3 degrees from midnight to this afternoon. the normal is now 70 and the low is 50 degrees and the record is 90 and 35 for this date. numbers are similar to the north and west. 54 quakertown and 56 in kennett square and chester 56 degrees and 58 for center city and the south and east, middle 50s the name of the game, browns mills and woodbine and 57 in hockessin delaware. today is not about location for what you are experiencing it's the same across any neighborhood. as we look at satellite and radar, the area of showers is lifting to the north and east and more showers are developing in the panhandle of west virginia, some of that would rotate here as we go through the latter part of the evening and overnight hours, cloudy and damp
and showers around and patchy fog as well. temperatures staying around 50 in center city and more showers around and 11 degrees below average. the high temperature is tomorrow exactly the same as today of 59 degrees, scattered showers especially late morning in the afternoon for the lehigh valley. very dreary at 57 degrees and as we get into the shore communities here, atlantic city specifically tomorrow, cloudy and cool with the northeasterly wind coming in off the water, 7 to 14 miles per hour high temperature of 56 degrees and not a washout but some of those scattered showers at time at any point during the day. we'll watch that cutoff upper level low, the energy in the upper atmosphere that is stuck, so to speak drifting from chicago down into the ohio and tennessee valley and thursday off the coast on friday. and this locks in this entire area with the clouds, the cool temperatures and again the very
unsettled weather. the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast 50s for tomorrow and cool with showers around, and same thing for thursday, 62 degrees and friday is the wettest of the next three days with periods of rain as the low is closer by. high temperatures could stay in the 50s to near 60 again and over the weekend a lot of clouds saturday, maybe some peeks of sun but a cold front approaches late in the day with the possibility of showers and that front kicks the system finally away and it will bring showers early on mother's day morning and returning sun in the afternoon with highs in the 70s be for sure that front will be off the front with the cutoff low by monday and tuesday returning sun with temperatures in the 70s. >> all right got that to look forward to. >> okay. >> thanks adam. >> 6abc.com/weather has everything you need as this stretch of rainy, damp weather continues. street level forecast from stormtracker 6 live double scan
