Good morning, NJ.
According to the latest weather data, Meteorologist for the National Weather Service said residents in Newark and the North Jersey region can expect another day of cool temperatures and scattered showers.
Although spring has officially arrived, the weather remains unseasonably cool with mostly cloudy skies, a high near 58, and a west wind of 6 to 9 mph.
The National Weather Service has issued a 40% chance of precipitation, with scattered showers expected after 2 pm. While the scattered showers are not likely to be severe, residents should be prepared for occasional rain throughout the day.
NWS forecasters said the humidity in the region is expected to be around 68%, and the wind speed will be about 9 mph from the west.
These conditions are not likely to significantly impact outdoor activities, but residents should still plan accordingly for the cooler temperatures and the possibility of rain.
The barometer in Newark and the North Jersey region is currently at 29.46 in, which is a typical reading for this time of year.
The low-pressure system in the region is responsible for the cooler temperatures and scattered showers.
However, residents can expect a gradual warming trend in the coming days as the low-pressure system moves out of the area.
