Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 30 Apr 2015 to Saturday 9 May 2015:

The end of April and the start of May is likely to be cold, windy and showery. A period of continuous rain and strong winds is expected for a time across eastern parts with snow on high ground in the north. A brief ridge of high pressure is likely to give a dry and bright start to the Bank Holiday Weekend, but it is expected to turn unsettled again from the Southwest later, with bands of rain or showers moving north-eastwards. The rest of the period is expected to remain unsettled, with the wettest and windiest conditions being in the north and west, and the best of the drier and brighter spells in the southeast. Temperatures through the period are likely to be below average.

UK Outlook for Sunday 10 May 2015 to Sunday 24 May 2015:

Changeable and at times unsettled conditions are more likely to persist for the first half of May, though it may turn drier mid-month. Central and western areas are likely to see the most of any rainfall, while southern and eastern districts and the far north have the best of any drier weather. However, there are no strong signals, with weather conditions likely to be fairly typical for the time of year with spells of fine and bright weather interspersed with more changeable conditions. Daytime temperatures likely to be above average when conditions are fine and near or a little below during unsettled spells. As is common for the time of year, spells of settled weather are likely to be accompanied by chilly evenings with 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.
