Good morning SunLive readers, it is a great day to celebrate the long weekend.
This Queen’s Birthday Monday, Tauranga residents can expect a chilly but fine day, and it is a good idea to make the most of the sunny weather before rain sets in later this week.
Tauranga is forecast as fine with southwest breezes. If you are heading up the Mount or out for coffee, take an extra layer as we are expected to reach a high of 14 degrees around 2pm this afternoon.
For those heading back to work tomorrow, perhaps think about getting the washing out on the line today as rain is expected to set in on Tuesday evening.
It is a rather quiet day in Tauranga today, so take the time to rest, relax and recuperate before tackling the remaining week ahead.
If you are thinking of things to do this weekend, take a lovely walk along the coastline, hike up Mount Maunganui on this lovely autumn day, or check out some of the events taking place below.
