Brisbane clear for British Lions vs Wallabies match

Ben McBurney, Friday June 21, 2013 - 15:37 EST

The British and Irish Lions vs Qantas Wallabies blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night is set to see generally dry and clear conditions, although jumpers will be needed.

The low pressure trough causing the cold and wet conditions seen across the region today will clear overnight giving way to generally clear skies throughout Saturday. Daytime temperatures will be much more pleasant, reaching about 19 degrees.

However, the lack of cloud cover will allow any daytime warmth to quickly escape as the sun disappears, so it would be wise to pack an extra layer or two.

For kickoff at 8pm, the mercury will be around 14 or 15 degrees, with a brisk wind in the wake of the trough making it feel even colder. It will get gradually cooler throughout the match, dropping to about 12 degrees by the time the full-time whistle has been blown.

Despite the cool conditions, it is set to be an exciting battle for this first test match.
