Good morning SunLive readers, Happy New Year and welcome to 2020!

I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable night and is looking forward to accomplishing whatever you may set your mind to this year.

Looking at the weather for today, it’s going to be a hot one so make sure you Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap!

It’s going to be a fine day today, with light winds with some southwesterlies from the afternoon.

The high is going to be 28 degrees with a low of 15 degrees.

If you are looking for something to do this evening, the Mount Summer Carnival is on.

It has been providing family fun at the beach for more than 40 years and has favourites like dodgem cars, a ferris wheel, carnival games and so much more.

It’s free entry – you only have to pay for the rides and games you want to try. It is open today from 6pm until 10pm.
