Auckland's Big Day Out is upon us and this year the weather may play a slightly bigger part than previous years...but only slightly.

A small area of low pressure is likely to form over the Auckland/northern NZ region - that means the sky becomes a little more unpredictable and the chance of showers increases.

Forecast for Friday in Auckland:

- Fairly Cloudyat times but mostly dry with a chance of a shower (about 40 per cent confidence) this afternoon or evening.

- Southerly winds picking up and turning sou'east and strengthening further in the afternoon or evening.

- High of around 25 but could feel more like the low 30s at the stadium. Drink plenty of water!

- Temperature in the evening will be around 17...would pay to take a jersey or coat if you feel the cold easily.
