a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move.
6:28 am
jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, 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 bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling.
6:29 am
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. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app, call 1-888-xarelto, or visit

6:47 am
we will pinpoint them for you in a moment. live doppler 7hd. the sun comes up at 7:17. we've been tracking just a few showers off the coast of that been continuing to sink to the south and east and not much look at all. nice shot from our roof camera. you see a partly cloudy sky. but as chris mentioned, delays at sfo. 47 in oakland and 42 redwood city. certainly a chillier morning out there with 45 half moon bay. here is a look at oakland from the east bay hills camera. you see the low clouds, really foggy in parts of livermore and concord. 39 in napa. so even with the chilly conditions, we are adding some poor visibility to the mix here with three quarters of a mile to a quarter mile from santa rosa, napa, the delta. so we've decreased in visibility down through livermore and the fog moved into san francisco. a little bit in oakland and emeryville. so be careful. give yourself some extra time and not only that, look at the numbers. we saw that 39 in napa.
6:48 am
so it's chilly out there. and you know the winter solstice about a week away. it arrives next sunday at 3:00 in the afternoon. so certainly feeling like winter, and as we look from the exploratorium camera, low fog and we have the clouds this morning. a break in the rain for today. the rain returns tomorrow evening. we will see periods of showers through several days into next week. they aren't huge systems. they are cold systems and they will add to the sierra nevada snowpack and they will add to the reservoirs around here. here's high pressure bringing us a break today. a weak high pressure building in. so that will allow for the fog to clear on out throughout the midmorning hours. and then it is on our heels. an area of low pressure coming out of the gulf of acton that will bring a cold system to the bay. here's a look at 5:00 tomorrow evening. thickening clouds by 7:00, 8:00 we have rain in the north bay. this is so:00 and moderate rain in the east bay around 580.
6:49 am
berkeley and oakland and the santa cruz mountains. overnight hours more moderate rain and it impacts your commute monday morning. it will be soggy, it will be slow in the north bay. look at the moderate rain. it continues to push on through throughout the afternoon. and look for scattered showers into tuesday, as well. the highest elevations of the north bay, the santa rosa crude mountains two inches of rain. three quarters in san francisco. and then with the scattered showers some downpours into tuesday and wednesday we will look for still an active pattern. 60 today. one of the milder rotations over in oakland. 56 in concord. a cool day in san jose at 59. the accuweather seven-day forecast dry today, rain tomorrow evening through monday. more rain likely on tuesday. pretty much it ends by wednesday, and then another system on friday. so it is what we need. they aren't huge systems so i think we will be fine in terms of our flooding potential. except the santa cruz mountains

a.m. this is jim. a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal.
