What’s On: Jams and the weather

Head to The Jam Factory for a great night. Photo: Bruce Barnard.

Good morning SunLive readers and welcome to another weekend!

It might look a bit grey and gloomy out there at the moment, but Metservice says the day will clear up for Tauranga after a wee bit of morning cloud.

Metservice is predicting a high of 26 degrees today, with some westerly breezes in the afternoon.

But no matter what the weather is up to, there's plenty to do in and around Tauranga today.

The Jam Factory in The Historic Village is set to have some great acts, including tonight's show with UK singer-storyteller Gecko.

But if that's not your 'jam', check out what else is on in the Bay today.
