Yesterday mainlanders felts the heat with 30s in both Christchurch and Dunedin but that appears to be just the entree before tomorrows main.
Sunday is still looking very hot in eastern areas and predictions are that the mid 30s will be commonplace out east and in some central areas too.

You’ve ignored the centre of the North Island again, no mention of anything around the Central Plateau.

Thanks for your comment and unfortunately we aren’t covering all centres at this point in time but will take it into consideration. Rotorua was the closest but we also didn’t cover Wanganui, Timaru, Queenstown etc etc
We try and aim for the biggest population centres but at times we do cover a number of areas off with regional forecasts.
