Waimarama Surf Lifesaving Club is welcoming the sunny weather as they gear up for their second week of beach education.

Hawke's Bay schools are taking learning out of the classroom and on to the beach, where students are taught about water safety over three weeks.

Waimarama Surf Lifesaving Club manager Heather Nilsson said every year Surf Lifesaving New Zealand employed several surf lifeguards to run the course, which usually took a different school every day.

"I think the kids love it.

"For some of them they might not get to the beach often, not everyone gets to enjoy what we have around us."

Ms Nilsson said the day went ahead rain or shine, but thankfully the weather recently had been perfect.

Luckily for all beach goers, Metservice meteorologist Claire Flynn said this week would gradually get warmer with most days featuring high temperatures in the mid-20s.

The scattered rain about the ranges yesterday was probably the most rain the region would have this week, she said.

There would be some cloud this morning which would clear early and become fine in most places, with light easterly breezes.

Tomorrow would be fine again, although there was a possibility there would be the "odd shower" about the ranges.

Light winds with northeasterlies around the coast would cool down the day's high of 25C.

Wednesday was predicted to have some morning cloud with a few drizzle patches followed by long fine spells in the afternoon, and a high of 25C again.

Despite the possibility of some thunderstorms in the ranges, Thursday was expected to be the hottest day of the week with a high of 26C.

Friday would also be mainly fine.
