Today the weather forecast is fine at first with a possible afternoon shower and light winds. 

It's a three-clothing layer day with a high of 15 and an overnight low of four degrees.  

This day in history in 1851 the USA won the first America's Cup. And this day in history in 1864 the International Red Cross was founded.  

In NZ history on this day in 1969 the first NZ 'Young Farmer of the Year' was chosen. The contest has since become an established part of the farming calendar. 

Check out what's on across the Bay and enjoy this morning's sunshine.

Should the Christmas/New Year school holidays be moved to February when the weather is typically better in NZ?

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
