Racegoers need not worry about holding on to their hats at Trentham tomorrow - they're in for a fine day.

Today's sunshine and light breezes will be repeated tomorrow with a high of about 20 degrees in Wellington, before packing in on Sunday.

''They won't need their raincoats... the northerly does come back but it's nothing mean or nasty by Wellington standards, probably just an extra hair pin,'' said Metservice forecaster Daniel Corbett.

On Sunday afternoon a band of rain coming up from the southwest of the South Island would hit Wellington with strengthening northerlies, and Wairarapa a little bit later on, he said.

Masterton was in for ''sun-bathing weather'' on Saturday, with an expected high for 26 degrees.

The wet weather would stick around on Monday and part of Tuesday before another window of fine weather later in the week.

The final day of the Wellington Cup Carnival kicks off at Trentham Racecourse from 10.30am tomorrow, with the $200,000 Wellington Cup race scheduled for 5.14pm.

What do you make of the proposed conference centre/hotel for Wellington?

Great - a big boost for the local economy

Nice - one of many projects needed

Argh - a white elephant in the making

First priority should be airport runway extension

Not sure at all
