By: Richard L. Smith 

The streak of pleasant weather in the Newark and North Jersey area is coming to an end as residents brace for a shift towards wetter conditions.AdAlthough the weather is starting off mild, The National Weather Service said the region is gearing up for a day dominated by rain, with early morning showers primarily affecting Central Jersey right now.

However, the intensity is expected to increase, leading to steadier and heavier rainfall as the day progresses into the evening.

While initial precipitation may seem misleading, with much not reaching the ground, the situation is set to change by late evening.

The National Weather Service (NWS) forecasts a stormy night ahead, with heavy showers expected mainly after 4:30 p.m.

The day will remain cloudy, reaching a high of 55 degrees, with winds blowing from the east at a gentle 5-10 miles per hour.

As night falls, wind speeds are anticipated to surge to 25-30 mph, and the rain will intensify, potentially causing localized flooding and water ponding on roads.AdDespite the rain, temperatures will unusually rise to 61 degrees, adding a warmer but wet twist to the weather scenario.

Residents are advised to prepare for the changing conditions and stay updated on weather advisories.
