Met Office (UK)
Play is suspended?
Met Office forecasters predict a change in the weather across the UK, including the remaining days at the Wimbledon tennis championships.
Following a mainly dry first week at SW19 and the hottest day of the year yesterday, conditions are expected to become unsettled with rain or showers at times.
Met Office Chief Forecaster, Andy Page said: "Wimbledon has had plenty of fine summer weather so far but that looks set to end for now. The court covers will certainly be getting some use this week and over the finals weekend."
The Met Office will continue to work with Wimbledon officials through the rest of the Championship to help them keep ahead of the weather.
