7:09 am
a heart valve problem. 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. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, 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 l uising, 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 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.
7:10 am
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 . now, in high definition, this is your news 13 skywatch forecast. >>zack: good saturday morning to you all. looking at a quiet start with a few lingering showers still right a ang that north carolina and tennessee border but overall, i do think we will clear out some of the skies. just before the break we were telling you about some of the slick spots on the roadways across westernrnorth carolina in buncombe county we are already getting many reports of a car
7:11 am
overlook road. and there is black ice across the board. so, we want to take our time if you are heading to any destination this morning. temperatures right now below the freezing point in asheville. everyone else across the mountains seemingly slightly warmer but still we will keep things more so on the cool side and once we clear out the skies that's when we will bring in the chilly temperatures. a little more sunshine on the way later on this afternoon, one front going to be pushing through, could get breezy at times. maybe upwards to 10-15 miles per hour in terms of the wind, but, there is another area of low pressure that we want to focus our efforts on. this is going to continue to progress to the east. it will be grabbing in coming of the moisture from the gulf of mexico. and we see a few blue arrows coming down from canada. that is actually going to be a different air mass around high pressure that will be drawing in some very chilly temperatures. so now, when we have that convergence of low pressure bringing up moisture in a cold air mass coming down from the north, that's going to facilitate some show showers for our sunday morning.
7:12 am
hour-by-hour forecast and show you that we are actually going to clear out skies an bring in a little more sunshine through about lunchtime today. even clearer conditions still in the afternoon hours. but it's going to change in a big way overnight. bringing in overcast conditions and then by 6 a.m. tomorrow morning, that's when you get that broadband and you see it is all blue. so, we are looking at show showers in the early morning on sunday. but watch how quickly this moves along. it will be pushing off to the east and by lunchtime, already starting to clear out some o o the mountains and the upstate. now, it's a little in terms of impact for that small spin, but our temperatures are going to be cool enough we could get just a little bit of a accumulation leading us into 12 p.m. tomorrow. so, as we make our way through the day on sunday, that's when monitoring. again, do think imthe packet will be minimal. we could get upwards of half an inch of snow in some mountain locations. but i don't think it is going to be sticking around too much. because we are actually going to be clearing out the skies. in. though.
7:13 am
down even into the low 30s. a few areas could only tap out into the upper 20s. and your overnight low, back down into the teens. now, this is area-wide. when you put the winds on top of it, because it is going to be a breezy day on monday, we are looking at very chilly conditions. trying to rebound the temperatures as we make our way through the rest of the work week. but, our next chance for rain and snow looking like it will be a little more significant come thursday and friday. >>evan: >>zack: and i have been talking all morning but we want to reiterate, an an editor came in to the news room talking about more information getting into accidents. a lot of slick road out there. make sure you are careful. each week we partner with chideo.com to bring stories about cause and giving. this week chideo shows no matter how old you are, you have the power to make a difference. >> >>reporter: sometimes tragedy inspires incredible generosity. it was the fatal car crash of 9

7:33 am
for this time of year later on this afternoon. a cold front going to continue to progress to the east. we will see breezier condition, maybe about 6-10 miles per hour with a gust or two of about 15 miles per hour. but an area of low pressure right now in central texas. that's what we want to focus on for the next day or so. it's going to continue to move towards our region. more so along the gulf coast. it will be wrapping in some moisture for the gulf of mexico. you see the blue arrows? this is the diving air mass that is dropping our temperatures off the for the start of this week but on the front side of that air moving in, and you converge that with the moisture moving in from the south that's when we will facilitate the snow. let's put it into motion and show you when folks can expect flakes. we will clear up skies by lunchtime, later on this afternoon, even more sunshine on the way and more blue sky. but take a look at what happens in the overnight hours. we will drive in some of the clouds and then by 6 a.m., you see that broadband of blue. and it's not green, so wee are not talkingng rain. that is show showers.
7:34 am
is going to be passing though. we are moving it off to the east and by lunchtime, we are already seeing seeing the clearer conditions. i think it will leave little impact and little trace. our overnight lows are dropping down below the freezing point once again. so there is the potential, but a few mountain locations could see a accumulation, maybe upwards of about a half an inch. but, since our temperatures are going to be warming up right around where we are seeing in this afternoon, into the mid 40s for the mountains, low 50s for the upstate, that means we are not going to see a whole lot in terms of an issue through that 24 hour period. so, again, we are only going to be talking about maybe half an inch of snow on the way. and then we are going to drop off our temperatures significantly as we clear some of the skies out. little more shine on the way for monday and tuesday. afternoon highs only into the upper 20s and low 30s. take a look at the overnight lows. into the teene, area-wide. a quick read on temperatures for the rest of the week. next chance for rain and snow
