Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for Strathclyde

Showers dying out then mainly dry.

This Evening and Tonight:

Occasional showers gradually easing through the evening with most places dry through the early hours. With some long clear spells around and the westerly breeze easing a touch of ground frost is possible. Minimum Temperature 1C.

Monday:

Dry with some sunshine but thicker cloud and rain reaching the west coast by mid-afternoon, this extending eastwards through the evening but becoming light and patchy. Maximum Temperature 10C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Mainly dry and settled with overnight frost and patchy fog likely, although some patchy rain possible across the far south for a time on Wednesday.

Issued at: 1600 on Sun 23 Nov 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing the southeast. Becoming cold and frosty for many.

This Evening and Tonight:

Persistent rain across the far southeast will clear through this evening to leave a clear, cold and frosty night for much of the country with some freezing fog patches forming. Less cold in the far northwest where showers will continue.

Monday:

Dry, sunny after a frosty, and locally foggy, start. Rain arriving in the northwest later. Central and some southern parts becoming frosty overnight with fog patches.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Turning cloudier through Tuesday and Wednesday with many seeing some rain, away from northwestern Britain where frost will become confined. Drier on Thursday, rain and strong winds far west later.

Issued at: 1600 on Sun 23 Nov 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 28 Nov 2014 to Sunday 7 Dec 2014:

Outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, and strong winds are likely across the west on Friday and into the weekend. The rain and strong winds will push slowly eastwards through the period with southeastern areas perhaps seeing little rainfall. Southerly winds will reach gale or severe gale force at times in the west/northwest, and draw in milder air than of late; especially by night. The unsettled conditions are likely to persist into the following week. The heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect northwestern areas whilst eastern parts are likely to see the best of the drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal or milder during spells of cloud and rain, but drier and clearer interludes between weather systems will allow an increased risk of frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Monday 8 Dec 2014 to Monday 22 Dec 2014:

There is no strong signal in weather pattern during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for a continuation of unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around, or a little above, average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places - this will be more likely across northern areas where there is also a chance of some snow on higher ground.

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.
