As the Newark and North Jersey region wakes up to a pleasant 41-degree morning at 4 a.m., my friends and family can look forward to a notably mild day ahead.The forecast promises a high nearing 60 degrees, offering a warm respite despite the lack of abundant sunshine.
While the day may be mostly cloudy, it's set to be free of precipitation, making it perfect for outdoor plans or errands.
Temperatures will rise into the 50s by 11 a.m. by early afternoon, the mercury is expected to peak at around 59 degrees, providing a delightful setting for any Saturday activities.
The National Weather Service anticipates a light south wind shifting to the southwest at 5 to 9 mph in the morning, adding a gentle breeze to the day's warmth. As evening approaches, forecasters say there's a slight 20 percent chance of showers before 8 p.m., after which the skies will remain mostly cloudy with a low of around 44 degrees.
Residents of Newark and the broader North Jersey area are encouraged to enjoy this mild and dry Saturday, making the most of the warm temperatures and cloud-covered skies.
