Weather in Wimbledon
Wimbledon is a suburb of London that lies about 11 km south west of Central London. The leafy suburb is home to the famous All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club which has played host to the prestigious Wimbledon Tennis Championships for the past century.
Every year from late June to the beginning of Julyfor two weeks 1000âs of tennis fans flock to the south London suburb to watch the 3rd Grand Slam event of the year. The tournament usually ends on the second Sunday of July (calendar year depending) meaning that it falls in the very middle of the English Summer.
So when I say that the tournament falls in the middle of summer you may imagine beautiful clear days of uninterrupted sun and dry tennis greens- Wimbledon is grass tournament- however this is often not the case. Wimbledon weather is no different to London weather which means that it is unpredictable and extremely changeable. (albeit Wimbledon may be a fraction cooler as it is not warmed by the urban warming affect which keeps Central London warmer than outer suburbs)
While you will often have a full day of glorious weather, complete with highs of mid 20âs and bright sunlight, it is not uncommon for the skies to sporadically open up and the tournament postponed from anything to one hour to a whole day whilst officials and players wait for the rain to clear. This is why the length of the tournament is variable as it leaves room for days of cancellations due to rain.
The temperatures during this period do generally remain quite pleasant however, with the month of July seeing a daily average of 18 degrees. So if visiting London during this time and plan a day out at the tennis be sure to pack a raincoat along with some sunscreen!
As Wimbledon only lays a short tube ride from Central London, the weather conditions are basically identical to those measured in the city. (See weather averages for London/ weather overview for London) However as mentioned earlier, you may find that the mercury may sit a small fraction lower when in south London as the heat radiated from the buildings in the city keep temperatures mildly warmer and civilians sheltered from major weather extremes.
Winter sees average lows of 3 degrees and highs of 7 degrees, while summer generally averages daily temperatures of around 16 t 18 degrees and occasionally rising into the high 20âs/ Rain falls throughout the whole year, yet surprisingly London actually records one of the lowest amounts of precipitation out of all of Europe. While rain is a constant presence, the showers are usually light and short lived. Clear sunny days are common throughout winter, just as rainy days occur throughout summer. You can experience 4 seasons in one day when visiting Englandâs capital, so come prepared for all seasons regardless of what time of the year you are visiting! And be sure to pack your sunglasses and an umbrella if heading for the Wimbledon tennis open.
