Good morning SunLive readers and welcome back to your third day of January.

I hope you are making the most of the New Year and decade already and spending time with those who matter most before most of us go back to work on Monday.

Looking at the weather for today, there is going to be some morning cloud but that is clearing up and it’s going to be a fine day.

There will also be some south-westerlies about, with them set to strengthen this afternoon.

The high today is 26 degrees with a low of 14 degrees.

If you are looking for something to do today, why not head to the Tauranga Waterfront where Water Polo on the Waterfront 2020 is taking place.

According to the event website, it brings New Zealand’s best water polo talent to The Strand for a two-day action-packed summer tournament.

Games started at 8.30am this morning and are going right the way through to 6pm tonight. The tournament is also happening tomorrow, Saturday, January 4.

The Thundercat Racing is also taking place today in Papamoa from 11am.

Thundercat Racing is a high adrenaline motorsport with explosive wave jumping and tight competitive racing in a tunnel hulled inflatable boat.

Later on this evening, Ziggy Alberts is set to perform at Soper Reserve in Mount Maunganui.

Singer-songwriter Ziggy Alberts has released five records, started his own label Commonfolk Records, played sold-out tours across the world, and his music has effortlessly amassed millions of listeners worldwide – at only 25 years old.

Ziggy’s show starts at 7pm. For more information about the concert, read the SunLive article here:
