Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 22 Apr 2015 to Friday 1 May 2015:

Through Wednesday and Thursday next week conditions are going to remain generally fine and dry with good sunny spells across the UK. Any showers or outbreaks of rain are going to be very isolated and largely confined to coastal parts. Nights will be chilly with a risk of rural frost whilst daytime temperatures should still be above normal and locally warm inland, though it will feel a little cooler in the south where there will be more of a breeze. Through the following weekend and the week after we are likely to have a transition to more changeable and unsettled conditions from the west/southwest with some wet weather expected. It will become much windier and also cooler than recently, with temperatures being suppressed a little below normal.

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 May 2015 to Saturday 16 May 2015:

There are signals for the unsettled and cooler conditions to last for the first few days of the peiod. Thereafter predictability becomes very limited as such conditiions should be fairly typical for the time of year. Some wet weather is likely at times along with some drier and brighter periods, perhaps the best of these towards the south and east. Daytime temperatures will probably range close to average during unsettled weather to above average when conditions are fine, and it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunnier spells as a result. As is common for the time of year, settled spells may be accompanied by chilly evenings with some isolated overnight frost in rural areas.

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.
