...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid.
breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. a possible retrial is discussed after a jury deadlocked in the first trial over freddie gray's death, both sides have met with the judge to talk about retrying the case,

feasterville you definitely want to slow it down we are looking at a lot of areas with ponding and puddling this is route 1 and langhorne is another spot getting the rain and there of course is the blue route continuing to push out the 476 way. this is the wider view, speckled precipitation through south jersey and wilmington is clearing out a little bit at least the most intense rain getting through you have more of the steady rain from glassboro to millville and toward philadelphia we are also wet and staying that way for the majority of the afternoon, as we head outside, we have sky 6 hd trying to look at the airport but the visibility not great with the rain falling and the cloud cover on the low side, 54 currently in the city and the winds are light and not a wind driven rain and not a great one out there right now.
between now until 2:00 we are looking at the continuation of the same sort of pattern, by 4:00 we are still looking at decent rain and getting close to the back edge of this system and 5:00 or 6:00, we are drying out and 7:00 a little drizzle or spotty shower, we are looking at a decent amount of rain, a quarter inch so far in philadelphia but another .78 inches to come yet, and trenton almost an inch and an additional inch for millville and maybe nor than that in atlantic city. 54 degrees in allentown un55 is your high in reading and 55 is the high in trenton and south jersey and delaware a lot of spots getting into the low 60s, 58 in philadelphia, by 3:00 we think we'll get our high around 4:00, the 59 degree reading and as the rain dies down the temperatures ease a bit, we are
not going all that low, a low of 47 degrees, and overnight tonight into tomorrow, there will be clouds around and it looks like we'll start to punch holes in the clouds and wind up with sun returning in the afternoon tomorrow, the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast 59 is the day's high and rainy and the majority of rain shutting off by dinner time and breezy and cooler and more sun as the day goes on and a high of 51 and then on saturday, we bottom out with a high of 42 and the morning low as you get out early on saturday, down around the freezing mark and windchills in the 20s and 30s, and even though we have sun it feels like a winter afternoon, sunny and chilly on sunday maybe a few more clouds digging in as the day goes on and still cool, and monday winter arrives in the evening and we wind up back in the 50s and 60s by tuesday and wednesday and that sets a new report and another couple of records like we just had.
