Happy Monday Christchurch,

It's set to be a scorcher of a week in The Garden City.

MetService's seven-day forecast says Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to hit highs of 35 and 32 degrees respectively – well over January's average maximum temperature of 23 degrees.

A high of 28 degrees is forecast for Monday (today).

How will you make the most of (or avoid) the heat this week?

The New Zealand grand prix event will be held on Lyttelton Harbour next January as part of SailGP’s second season. The SailGP league involves teams racing identical hydrofoiling catamarans at speeds of up to 50 knots (100kmh).

Olympic and world champions Peter Burling and Blair Tuke will head New Zealand’s first entry in the event. Also competing will be Sir Ben Ainslie, skippering the British boat, and Australian Jimmy Spithill piloting for the United States.
