Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 5 Jul 2015 to Tuesday 14 Jul 2015:

Many places will have a dry morning on Sunday, with sunny spells. However, some showers may develop during the afternoon, mainly in the north and the west. Temperatures will generally be near or just above average, though perhaps still very warm in the southeast. From the new working week onwards, there is an increasing risk of some rain spreading into the west and northwest at times, but most places look to stay mainly fine and dry, especially in the far south and southeast. Temperatures will remain near or slightly above average for many, though the very warm and humid conditions could perhaps return to the south and southeast at times, accompanied by some heavy showers or thunderstorms.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 15 Jul 2015 to Wednesday 29 Jul 2015:

Many southern and central parts of the UK are likely to be mainly dry, often with fine, warm conditions. Towards the north and northwest there is more of a risk of seeing spells of more unsettled weather, however any periods of rain may well be less frequent than normal with some good periods of dry weather expected here as well. Temperatures are likely to be near or a little above average in the northwest, but in the southeast it will be very warm for the time of year, and could possibly become hot at times. With these warmer temperatures there is a continued low risk of occasional thundery outbreaks, especially in the southeast.

Glasgow information

Scotland's largest city, Glasgow, is located in the West Central Lowlands on the river Clyde. With a city council population approaching 600,000 - and almost double that figure living in the surrounding area - Glasgow is the third most populous city in the United Kingdom.

Glasgow has one of the largest concentrations of galleries, cinemas and theatres in the whole of Britain. The Theatre Royal is the base of Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, while venues such as King Tut's Wah Wah Hut and the Carling Academy have hosted some of the top names in music. Sports fans need look no further than the city's great football clubs. Alongside the lesser-known Partick Thistle you'll find Glasgow Celtic, first British winners of the European Cup, and Glasgow Rangers, seven-time domestic treble winners. Games between the 'Old Firm' as they are known are often passionate affairs and are keenly fought.

Glasgow can be one of the wettest locations in the UK during winter with an average of over 300mm of rain falling between the start of December and the end of February. Temperatures are colder than the UK average with maximums of 6 °C and minimums of 1 °C. Similarly sunlight hours are lower than average. During the last week of December 1995 temperatures fell as low as -20 °C at Glasgow airport. This unusually cold weather burst water pipes and resulted in severe flooding in unoccupied homes and commercial properties.

Temperatures in spring are usually around the UK average for Glasgow. March through to May sees daytime maxima rise from 8 °C to 15 °C. Low rainfall averages mean that late spring and early summer is often the driest time for Glasgow. Accumulation is around 221 mm, meaning rainfall is below the UK totals for spring months.

Summer temperatures in Glasgow are a little below the UK average but higher than the regional average due to the urban heat island effect. Expect highs of 19 °C in July. Rainfall accumulation starts to increase from August, and the number of days with rainfall greater than 1mm does as well.

Sunshine hours start to drop significantly from September down to a seasonal low of 51 hours in November. Autumn also sees the highest rainfall figures on average with almost double the amount of rain falling in October than June. Temperatures in the autumn months range from 9 to 16 °C, around the UK average.
