As dawn breaks over the Newark and North Jersey region, the temperature hovers at a comfortable 46 degrees, setting the stage for a momentous day.Real EstateMillions are on the edge of their anticipation for today's solar eclipse, expected to grace the skies around 2:10 p.m. in our region, marking an astronomical event that experts are calling the longest-lasting of its kind in centuries.

Mother Nature is the key to the day's viewing experience, with weather conditions playing a crucial role in the visibility of the eclipse.

The National Weather Service forecasts a beautiful day ahead with mostly sunny skies and a high near 65 degrees. However, the presence of cloud cover will ultimately determine the quality of the spectacle.

Should the skies remain clear, our area is poised to witness about 90 percent of the eclipse, offering a near-complete experience of this rare celestial phenomenon.

With calm winds becoming southwest at 5 to 7 mph in the afternoon and a mostly cloudy night ahead with lows around 49 degrees, spectators are reminded to wear protective eclipse glasses.

As excitement builds, the community comes together under the banner of science and unity, ready to join in the joy and wonder of Happy Eclipse Day.
