12:22 pm
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 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 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. make mine an arnold palmer. same here.
12:23 pm
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®. chopper 6 hd live over northeast philadelphia. a crash that happened just a

12:25 pm
just about every day we get a picture and i'm not sure where it is, i ask sara and she know its. >> i think that is rick's house. >> you can see him there in the barn getting his horse's shoed. >> flies to get out and see the historic regions, lots of sunshine and no humidity. temperature of 81 degrees, 54 is your dew point so the humidity is down below the 60 degree dew point level where we consider it sticky and winds are turned south-southwest at 6 miles per hour and later tonight and this evening it will be more humid than sets us up for tomorrow's big change. for now not bad. 79 in allentown un80 in read and 79 in trenton and 81 in philadelphia and 80 in millville. cape may 80 degrees right by the beach. and satellite shows you while there is cloud cover popping up here and there, generally speaking a lot of sun for the day.
12:26 pm
up in the lehigh valley valley, warm and 86, and humidity is on the low side and down the beach sunny and pleasant, a high of 80 degrees. currently the temperature in atlanta city has slipped to 78. and 87 is your high in philadelphia. mostly sunny and warm certainly but nice with the humidity paving itself for most of afternoon. the winds starting the south-southwest turn and that will sticky us up in a bit. and on the way home no weather related issues, 85 at 5:00 and 6:00 down to 82 degrees and mostly sunny skies and getting more sticky as we head late into the afternoon and evening. and overnight we expected humidity to rise and develop partly cloudy sky cover and the wins continue out of the south and then tomorrow things change. we start to see a jump in the humidity as we go through the morning and afternoon and dew points probably up over 70 and
12:27 pm
it will feel tropical. watch what happens at 6:00 in the morning and 12:00. with the warm front coming through we'll see some pop-up showers and maybe even a thunderstorm. and then into the afternoon and this gets to be a bit pronounced at some points. it's not going to be a washout tomorrow but again there will be showers and perhaps some gusty thunderstorms popping up late in the day. and again in the humid atmosphere it could produce an isolated downpour. the line you see forming is ahead of a cold front coming through than is likely in the evening hours with potentially strong thunderstorms in the neighborhoods and even if you don't get damaging winds you have the potential for damaging hail and driving rain out of this. and after midnight we expect it to be mostly over. lightning say possibility for storms tomorrow and downpours from showers and strong winds, a moderate chance of that. not so big on the large hail but small hail is possible. today beautiful and 87 degrees
12:28 pm
and lots of sun and not all that humid and tomorrow the possibility of at times a pop-up shower or thunderstorm, and some drenching downpours with that humidity really climbing a high of 86. the good news is it gets out of here for your weekend. saturday the humidity drops again and 84. and make your plans for sunday beautiful and 86. the 4th of july clouds and sun, and there is one long range model that shows showers before the end of the day into the evening. that wouldn't be great for fireworks a couple others hold it off to the west. that would be better. we'll see which way it plays out. i would keep my eye on monday. >> quick break and another check of more news when we come right back. alzheimer's means...

so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to her current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. (announcer) namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney, or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions
12:30 pm
may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, he's protected me. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at "action news" at 12:30 continues. with sara bloomquist, rick williams and meteorologist, david murphy. hello again rick is off and here are the stories we are following on "action news" at 12:30. police say a 13-year-old lost his life when a group of teenagers were playing with a gun in philadelphia. we are live with the latest. concerns over a strike by atlanta city casino workers lessening after deals have been made. and now the details a vigil is planned
