when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung, it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. 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's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. 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®,
11:44 am
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 kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. 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®. creativity for a cause. that's the mission of the next guest you're about to meet. a bucks county woman turned her passion to fashion into remarkable works of art designed

11:49 am
remember back on monday and tuesday we were setting records, we had four days in a row with record high temperatures. 53. today 59. tomorrow down to 49. and saturday down to 39. 48 degrees in kennett square. mount holly is 54 as is wrightstown and these temperatures with southeast wind. the ocean is more than 10 degrees warmer than normal as well. so it's not that cold anymore. we can see all of this rain that continues to move across the area and into the area of full phil all in it right now with some moderate to heavy rain, delaware county getting it, the
11:50 am
lower portion of bucks county right around the trenton area and there's more to come down in delaware and near smyrna, more in maryland. it's going to come straight up i-95. yeah, it's going to be really wet for the next, let's say, three hours. and then things may start to taper off. but that's a large area of rain, it's going to take a while to get out of here. here's the futurecast. we go through the afternoon. this is just in and you can see by 3:00 we're already starting to taper off a little bit but we're really going to be seeing the improvements between 4:00 and 6:00 this afternoon. big change across the area. and the amounts of rain as we go through the rest of the day, half inch to an inch so we're not talking about enough rain to cause any significant flooding but some ponding on the roads is possible. and it will not be as wet for the afternoon rush as it is right now. with rain heavy at times
11:51 am
especially for the next two to three hours, temperatures getting into the upper 50s to near 60 degrees. that's pretty mild considering the average high is 44. so tomorrow we're colder and windy, saturday is the coldest and the windiest. we'll actually be using windchills again. but not for long. it will be coldest sunday morning but getting calm and by the time the eagles are playing sunday evening it won't be all that cold, it will be dry and then we warm up, get wet again next week by wednesday and christmas eve you could see record warmth again. >> thank you, glenn. it has become a holiday tradition in our area and nbc 10 is thrilled to bring you one of the finalists in the more 101 fm christmas competition. this is the chorus that played
