7:40 am
>> zack: with are looking at mostly cloudy conditions and overcast skies but activity is limited for the moment, however, some moisture already starting to move in to the extreme western counties of the mountains and we will see more on the way, but they will be spotty at best. not a whole lot in terms of impact. little in terms of accumulation, but the big i story is the warmer temperatures. right now, asheville, sitting at 44 degrees. now, generally, when we move further north towards newland and some of the northern mountains, we get colder but take a look at that, 50 degrees right now there. hendersonville, beating them out, 51 for the moment. and yes we will keep things on the warm side throughout the course of the day leading into the afternoon and in comparison to what we saw 24 hours ago, maybe upwards of 15-20 degrees warmer than friday morning's commute. so, that is going to be sticking around all weekend. but if you are planning on going outside we want to keep an eye to the sky as we are going to see the cloud cover. we are going to see the slim chances of rain. we will describe them as spotty and isolated. but, it will be calm breezes. down in the upstate, there is a
7:41 am
but little in terms of accumulation. maybe even trace amounts in the next 24 hours. but, by tomorrow afternoon, we will increase the chances ever so slightly. so let's put this into the hour-by-hour forecast for you now. starting to see a southwesterly flow. that's increasing the temperatures and the afternoon hours. by 12 p.m., spotty. you will see a broader band rolling through --, right across the north carolina and south carolina border but it is going to be dissipating quickly, right after the mid morning hours, leading us into the evening we will see cloud cover remaining. you no, overnight,@ a bit of clearing so we could see even fog concerns as you are heading out to your destination on sunday morning. but watch what happens as we head into the afternoon hours on sunday. that's when we start to see the storm chances picking up ever so slightly. they're not going to be as wide spread as what we see for the upcoming work week but we want to grab the umbrella by tomorrow afternoon. take a look at this. we are not seeing a whole lot in terms of impact but some locations could possibly see even upwards of a half inch of rain, especially for those in the northern mountains across the tennesseeeorder as well.
7:42 am
tomorrow afternoon, but the bigger implications are certainly going to be coming as we make our way into monday and tuesday and by wednesday, i think we may even mix in just a bit of wintry area. so, we could be monitoring that as well. upwardssf maybe 2-3" of accumulations in some localized spots for that 72 hour period. not a lot of concern today. 60 degrees in asheville, warmer still as we head into sunday, but we will pay the price with some rain showers across our region. we will decrease our temperatures with the impacts rolling through monday thru wednesday, clearing out by tend of the week. >>stan: good morning, everyone, in sports, the mac 3a conference title game, north buncombe countyham, reynolds hoping fofo the double but to win both titles will take a huge effort. girls game, irwin stands in the way, warriors third ranked in 3a, 23-1, two easy wins over the rockets in the early season. third quarter, griffin beats

have a great day. i'm chriribosh. 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
7:59 am
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. 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 . good morning, america. happening right now -- saturday showdowns. the big battles for both parties. a pivotal republican primary in south carolina. the candidates confident.
