My friends and family in Newark and the North Jersey region are greeting Superbowl Sunday with dry and unseasonably mild conditions, offering a perfect opportunity to enjoy the festivities outdoors.As fans prepare for the big game, temperatures start at a comfortable 45 degrees, promising a pleasant day despite the cloud cover.
The National Weather Service (NWS) notes today's high will hover near 49 degrees under mostly cloudy skies with a gentle northwest wind of 5 to 7 mph.
As the evening approaches, temperatures will dip to around 34 degrees, maintaining the mild weather with mostly cloudy skies and a light northwest breeze.
However, residents should make the most of the mild weather while it lasts, as changes are on the horizon.The National Weather Service is closely monitoring a snowstorm moving in from the west, initially presenting as rain before transitioning to snow by Tuesday morning.
Newark is expected to see about 1-3 inches of snow, making for slick and snowy conditions.
Monday will serve as the calm before the storm, with Tuesday forecasted to bring significant snowfall to parts of North Jersey.
The upcoming weather event is anticipated to impact the region substantially, with preparations recommended ahead of the snowstorm.
Enjoy the mild Superbowl Sunday, and stay prepared for the wintry shift coming our way.
Stay tuned to the NWS for updates as the situation develops, and stay safe as the snowstorm approaches.
