Kia ora and welcome to Sunday! 

We’re expecting a mostly rainy day today. This should ease to fine spells and isolated showers later in the afternoon.

It’s a three-clothing-layer day with a high of 15 and an overnight low of 7 degrees.

Monday through to next Sunday are forecast to be mainly fine, with southeasterlies. Overnight temperatures during the week are expected to drop to around 5 degrees.

The rain has impacted on some events, with the following cancellations:

The Matariki Kite Day at Fergusson Park has been cancelled. The Pups in Shorts 4 Waipuna Hospice event has been postponed until Sunday June 30. Bay of Plenty Regional Council has cancelled today’s planting day at Maketu due to planting being completed on Friday and Saturday thanks to a large number of volunteers coming to help.
