The ‘Wimbledon Weather’ infographic tells an interesting story of the history of Wimbledon and its rather confusing and spontaneous weather changes. Created by the United Kingdom based creative agency, DNA, this engaging infographic has pieced together bits of history to reveal an interesting graphic regarding the famous tournament’s weather patterns.
“We can’t stop the rain from falling, but we can help the referee organize the tournament around the weather, so that spectators get to watch as much tennis as possible and so that players don’t risk injury by playing on slippery courts,” says Tim Hewson, an on-site Met Office forecaster. Incredible years of weather include the tournament day of 28th of June, 1906 in which over 62.7mm of rainfall was recorded, making it the wettest day in the game’s history. On the other hand, 1976 saw the warmest day with a 25.4 degree Celsius temperature present.
