What to Expect From the Wimbledon Weather?
Rain or shine, Wimbledon is always an exciting occasion. From 122 degree Fahrenheit heat to seemingly endless rain, Wimbledon has experienced its fair share of extreme and unusual weather during its lengthy history.

With the Centre Court boasting an impressive retractable roof, bad weather isn’t an obstacle for Wimbledon’s important matches and finals. While rain no longer stops play, it’s still a lot more fun to enjoy The Championships in warm summer weather.

We spoke to the experts at WimbledonDebentureHolders.com to learn more about what to expect from the weather during this year’s Wimbledon Championships.

Rain: An Occasional Annoyance

Since Wimbledon is held during the summer, rain is rarely an issue. However, when it rains during the tournament, it tends to pour down. Last year, play was cancelled on several outside courts as rain disrupted matches on the 27th of June.

Thanks to the roof on the Centre Court, which was installed in 2009, rain isn’t such a big deal during the later matches of the tournament. The All England Club plans to add a similar roof to the No. 1 Court in time for the 2019 Championships.

Heat: Extreme Conditions

During Wimbledon 2013, players had to worry about extreme heat far more than they needed to worry about rain. Temperatures during the tournament resulted in spectators queuing in front of water fountains just to escape the extreme heat.

During the men’s final, temperatures reached an astounding high of 122 degrees Fahrenheit (49.8C), causing Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray to chill themselves with iced drinks and baseball caps to shield the incredibly hot sunlight.

Monitor Wimbledon weather with the Met Office

Worried about a heat wave? Concerned that you could be caught out in the rain on one of the outdoor courts? The Met Office has a special weather forecast especially for the All England Tennis Club, making it easy to check the Wimbledon weather forecast before you decide to buy a ticket or join The Queue.

Wimbledon weather vs. other tournaments

While Wimbledon’s temperatures can reach extremes, they’re not as dangerous as those observed at some other tournaments. During this year’s Australian Open, the older brother of Andy Murray, Jamie Murray, suffered cramps and heatstroke as the daytime temperature climbed above 43.3 degrees Celsius.
