Rugby fans should pack a poncho when heading to the Lions Test in Wellington on Saturday, as heavy rains in Westland are expected to move north.

The MetService has issued a heavy rain warning for the Westland and Buller regions.

Up to 140mm of rain could fall in an 18-hour period from Friday morning.

The rain is expected to move on to the rest of the country over the weekend, just in time for the second All Blacks-Lions Test on Saturday.
