WEATHER-PWC


Temperatures this morning are not as bad as yesterday, but still a cool and dreary start to your day. A few spotty showers will hang around this morning as our temperatures slowly creep up into the low 60s. A breezy afternoon will make conditions feel a little cooler and the mostly cloudy skies won't help much either.

If you haven't brought out the warm coat yet, it's about that time. Temperatures will just continue to drop as we get closer to Friday. Tomorrow we will wake up in the low 40s and only warm up to the 60s.

Friday morning will be one of the coldest starts to the day in about 3 years with temperatures in the upper 30s. There is a wind chill advisory in place so it'll feel much colder outside with the breezy conditions. Make sure you bundle up if you do have to be outdoors as our temperatures only make it up into the upper 50s.

Warmer weather is on the way as we get closer to next week as we warm back up into the upper 70s by Monday. Return to index of stories...

ACTIVATED CHARCOAL IS HAVING ITS MOMENT… THE NEW FAD IS ESPECIALLY POPULAR AMONG MILLENIALS FOR ITS PERCEIVED HEALTH BENEFITS.

SO WITH EVERYONE EATING AND DRINKING ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, IS IT safe?

Lingtak-Neander Chan, PharmD

UW School of Pharmacy

"If you go to an ice cream store and see charcoal colored ice cream, I think you can have fun and enjoy it."

Lingtak-Neander Chan, PharmD

UW Medicine Pharmacy

"25 grams is the dose we start using in treating patients in the emergency department for suspected poisoning."

"It works by binding to any foreign substances in our gut."

TRACK: 6

AND THAT BINDING EFFECT IS WHAT COULD CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH MEDICATIONS, INCLUDING BIRTH CONTROL, IF YOU TAKE MORE THAN

10 GRAMS OF ACTIVATED CHARCOAL WITHIN THE SAME HOUR AS A PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE.
