What‘s on - frocks on bikes, markets and hot pools
Good morning, welcome to Sunday. Morena koutou. Kia pai to ra.
We are expecting a fine day ahead with light winds, so make the most of it for walking, cycling, gardening, going to the beach for a picnic, being outdoors and enjoying time with family and friends.
It’s a three-to-four clothing-layer day with a very light southwesterly breeze. The temperature is expected to reach a high of 15 degrees and an overnight low of 8 degrees. Sunset is at 5.03pm.
