What‘s on - carnival, cricket, outdoor cinema
Good morning and welcome to Monday. Kia ora. Kia ngahau me o whanau me o hoa.
Today’s weather is expected to be fine with a chance of an afternoon shower. Also expect southwesterlies, fresh from evening onwards.
It’s a one-clothing-layer day with an expected high of 23 degrees around 3pm, and an overnight low of 11 degrees. Low tide is at 12.51pm and high tide at 6.59pm. Sunset is at 8.40pm.
Traffic is expected to be busy eastbound on SH29 through the Lower Kaimai area from 10am – 4pm each day between Sunday December 27 and Wednesday December 30. Road users are advised to expect delays and allow extra time for their journeys or consider travelling outside these periods, and to drive to the conditions.
Recent warm conditions have caused increased insect activity, and where there has been rainfall and high humidity, garden plants are under pressure from diseases. The conditions are likely to continue, so keep an eye out for diseases in the garden and pests affecting your plants and invading your home. For further advice on gardening click here.
