What are your plans for back-to-back days above 30 degrees?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

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?
