After my friends and family approach the weekend, it's time to break out those umbrellas and prepare for a significant shift in weather conditions.
After a week of relatively pleasant weather, Newark and North Jersey residents should brace themselves for a weather system that promises to bring rain and high winds on Saturday.
According to The National Weather Service, currently, conditions are partly sunny, with a high near 71 and a gentle north wind of 6 mph.
However, this pleasant weather is expected to change dramatically as we head into Saturday.
A "red alert" has been issued for Saturday as a substantial weather system approaches the area.
NWS forecasters predict we can expect a washout with heavy rainfall and high winds.
Rainfall amounts of 1-4 inches are expected, making it essential for residents to stay weather-aware and be prepared for potential flooding and travel disruptions.
So, while today offers a chance to soak up the sunshine and enjoy the pleasant conditions, staying updated on weather forecasts on RLS Media by clicking HERE and preparing for a wet and windy Saturday is advisable.
