As Veterans Day begins, Newark and the North Jersey Region residents are waking up to a chilly start to the weekend.
The day is expected to remain dry but notably cold, with temperatures just below the seasonal average.
According to The National Weather Service, at 4:30 a.m. today, the region is experiencing a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and the humidity level stands at 86 percent.
NWS meteorologists say a light south wind of 5 mph is blowing, with a barometric pressure reading of 30.22 inches.
The forecast for the day includes sunny skies, but the sun's rays won't do much to warm up the area. The high temperature is anticipated to reach only around 53 degrees, with a northwest wind of 6 to 9 mph.
As residents prepare to celebrate Veterans Day and attend various parades and events in New York and New Jersey, it's advisable to bundle up with a warm coat, as the chilly conditions are expected to persist.
The evening will bring clear skies but continued cold temperatures, with a low of around 33 degrees and a north wind of 7 to 9 mph.
We are wishing everyone a Happy Veterans Day from all of us at RLS Media.
