Superb racing weather for Torbanlea picinic carnival
THE weather will be warm enough to break out those colourful summer dresses but be warned - those delicate, decorative hats might get blown away in the afternoon.
The weather is shaping up beautifully for the weekend as preparations get under way for Saturday's Torbanlea Picnic Races.
The weather is expected to reach a high of 27 with a minimum of 16.
Forecaster Brett Harrison said there could be thunderstorms away from the coast on Saturday, but all in all it was set to be a great day.
The only downside for ladies wearing hats or fixing fascinators in their hair was a forecast of winds picking up force in the afternoon.
The action will start just after 9am and there will be five races as well as a fashions on the field contest, live entertainment and novelty events such as the tug of war.
Admission will cost $10 for adults and children under-14 can get in free.
