After enjoying a beautiful start to the weekend with summer-like weather, my friends and family in Newark and the North Jersey region should prepare for a significant temperature drop on Sunday.

Sheriff Sunday will be a stark contrast to the pleasant conditions of the first half of the weekend, with temperatures dropping by approximately 20 degrees.

Early risers will experience cooler temperatures compared to Saturday.

Rain is expected, primarily after 10 a.m., with a steady temperature of around 53 degrees.

National Weather Service meteorologist said a northeast wind of around 8 mph is anticipated, and there is a 90% chance of precipitation. Rainfall amounts are expected to range between a tenth and a quarter of an inch.

Sunday night will bring more rain, with a likelihood of steady temperatures around 53 degrees.

Patchy fog is expected before midnight, followed by overcast skies. A north wind of 5 to 8 mph is forecasted, with a 70% chance of precipitation.

NWS radars indicate new precipitation amounts are projected to be between a tenth and a quarter of an inch.

Residents are advised to prepare for cooler and wetter conditions throughout the day on Sunday and into the evening.
