Wimbledon weather watch

We provide forecasts for Wimbledon

17 June 2011 - All eyes will be turning to the sky in SW19 as the Wimbledon Championships get underway on Monday.

Met Office forecasts currently indicate that rather wet and windy weather is expected on Monday. Beyond that the recent changeable conditions are likely to continue, with a mixture of showers and some sunshine for the rest of the first week.

Andy Page Met Office Chief forecaster said: "Unfortunately, after several years of mainly dry Wimbledon fortnights, this year's tournament is likely to see more unsettled conditions, with rain at times."

The Met Office will be providing a range of forecasts for Wimbledon including:

  • Our special Wimbledon Events page that enables visitors to view the forecast up to five days ahead.
  • Latest weather updates on our Twitter and  Facebook pages throughout the championships.

Glastonbury also gets underway from Wednesday next week, with the unsettled theme to the weather expected across the festival site too. As well as our Glastonbury Festival page we will have festival weather forecasts on our  YouTube channel from Tuesday.
