Who else can smell a hint of spring in the air?
The last few days have been much warmer than usual for August, and today the forecast high is for a balmy 17 degrees, with an overnight low of 10 degrees.
With only a few showers predicted for late afternoon/evening, it could be a great day to stroll along the beach or tackle Tauranga's perennial favourite, the Mount.
Tonight, there is some live music on in the form of top singer-songwriter and recording artist Charlotte Yates, who is teaming up with multi-instrumentalist Gil Eva Craig (bass/tenor horn) to showcase songs hot off the press from Charlotte's upcoming album release, Then The Stars Start Singing, alongside many loved favourites from her extensive back catalogue in a sizzling two-set show.
The show begins at 5pm at Village Cinema in the Historic Village, 17th Ave West. General admission is $25 per person. For more information visit Eventfinda.
