Meteorologists at the National Weather Service said North Jersey, including Newark, can expect a better-looking and feeling weekend with pleasant weather conditions.

Those planning to join RLS Media for the Lupus walk at Met Life Stadium Saturday morning will need to carry a jacket.

Meteorologists say the weather forecast for today indicates a 40 percent chance of showers after noon, with patchy fog before 9 a.m. Otherwise, the day will be partly sunny, with a high near 62 degrees.

Wind speed is expected to be light and variable, becoming north around 5 mph in the morning.

The barometer reading for today is 30.11 in, indicating fair weather conditions. NWS forecasters said there is a slight chance of showers, so it is essential to stay prepared.

You should know that Saturday's Lupus Walk is a community event held annually to create awareness about Lupus and raise funds for research. This autoimmune disease affects millions worldwide.

The walk will begin at 10:00 am and will feature a 2-mile scenic walk around the Met Life Stadium. Participants are encouraged to wear purple, the official color of the Lupus Foundation.
