My family and friends in the Newark and North Jersey region are experiencing damp and breezy weather conditions, with expected light rain throughout the day.
Despite waking up to dampness, the rain is not widespread, but the persistent breeze and wet conditions are noticeable.
According to The National Weather Service, the forecast for the day includes cloudy skies with a high temperature reaching around 60°F (15°C).
The northeast wind is blowing at speeds of 11 to 13 mph, occasionally gusting as high as 24 mph.
The chance of precipitation stands at 60%, with anticipated new precipitation amounts between a tenth and a quarter of an inch.
However, there's good news for those eagerly awaiting drier weather.
NWS forecasters say the current weather pattern is expected to give way to clearer skies later in the evening and into tomorrow, offering a respite from the recent damp and breezy conditions.
