Auckland is home to two significant sporting events in the next few days. Thursday is the parade for the Americaâ€™s Cup and, sadly, the forecast looks a bit wet. While dry spells will be around in the morning itâ€™s likely they will fade around lunchtime as rainy areas move in. There is a chance it could arrive late, so Thursdayâ€™s forecast still remains a bit 50/50 for the parade but chances are there will be some wet weather so bring a jacket.
Then we zip ahead to Saturday for the important final test at Eden Park as New Zealand takes on the Lions. Saturday itself doesnâ€™t look too bad, but once again the latest data suggests rain clouds will be arriving at night timeâ€¦once again, jackets may be needed.
