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. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting 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. 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. 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. there's more to know. xarelto. those that live along north carolina's outer banks are preparing for a drenching coming from a tropical depression. the area could get up to 5 inches of levy rain as the system sweeps near the coast. the storm is not expected to make landfall.
now a check of the accuweather forecast. with meteorologist, david murphy. >> reporter: they dodged a bullet with round one and there is another one coming up the coast this weekend and that churns up our surf. and we have one out there now doing the same thing. stormtracker 6 live double scan showing us we are dry and outside sunshine mixing with clouds in center city from temple university at sky 6 hd and a warm and in some cases a muggy afternoon, the temperature building right now 85 degrees, 63 is your dew point, and that is on the low side, humidity wise and there are other areas higher than that especially the farther south you go, basically a humid afternoon ahead. winds from the southwest at 8 miles per hour, and i would not be shocked if that came up a bit in the afternoon. cloud cover to the north and west and fair weather cumulous clouds and overall partly sunny skies today across the breadth
of the region. and hot in philadelphia, 91 degrees there and 90 or close to it in toms river, reading and down towards wilmington. 83 to 84 is your range of highs and it doesn't sound bad but ocean temperatures in the 70s that sounds good. yes, but we are still dealing with the heavy surf and rip currents coming in out of the east and that water piling up on the beach giving you the problems. if you are swimming in the ocean not only today but straight through the weekend you want to make sure you do it near lifeguards and listen to the whistles and obey their directives. 88 by 2:00 and then a high of 85 and mid-70s by later on this evening. the overnight hours, starting at 11:00 in the northern and western suburbs, rights through we are back on the air and could be a rumble of thunder and passing shower or thunderstorm. we have a concern tomorrow
afternoon another batch of this spotty shower activity could pop up in some places, and at the same time we see late day sun. starting in the northern and western suburbs, we'll see if this erupts. gaston a category 3 hurricane getting out of here and tropical depression 8 veers away from north carolina and tropical depression is coming up the coast following and it continues to pull away from the east coast at this point but is expected to grow into a tropical storm perhaps by later tonight and as it passes by it pushes the heavy surfs and high swells in on the eastern united states including delaware and new jersey beaches. that is the source of our rip currents and the next problem is this tropical storm, it looks to form and could briefly become a hurricane as it comes ashore in northern florida. the track is farther north and orlando and tampa have less of an impact. it looks like it will come up
the coast again and skirt past hatteras and continues to push in heavy surf and rip current potential this weekend and could curve in toward cape cod, near boston. if have you plans to head up to new england for the holiday weekend, keep your eyes on this some spaghetti plot models bring it in there. your forecast, we have a hot one 91 degrees and more humid than yesterday in some spots and tomorrow you saw the spotty showers drying out in time for late day sunshine and lowering humidity and high of 84, after that we are in the pink, comfortable on friday and 83 and great weather for the temple opener against army in the evening. saturday looks great and 79 and sunday a bit warmer but nice wrap up to the holiday weekend. the heat and humidity begin to build back in on tuesday. >> shh lets take this weekend as we get it. thank you.
