UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and fine for most, with rain continuing in northwest.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloud and rain, in the northwest, will continue edging southeastwards overnight, possibly reaching northern parts of northern England by dawn. Elsewhere will be dry, clear and cold with a rural grass frost and a few mist and fog patches likely.

Tuesday:

The cloud and occasional rain will continue southwards, across the rest of northern England and north Wales by evening. Largely dry and fine elsewhere, though further rain in northwest later.

Rain clearing southwards Wednesday with the odd shower following. Largely cloudy on Thursday and Friday, windy with outbreaks of rain or drizzle in northwestern areas, drier with some brightness elsewhere.

Issued at: 1700 on Mon 22 Sep 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 27 Sep 2014 to Monday 6 Oct 2014:

Fairly cloudy at first, though some sunny intervals developing for central, southern and eastern parts of the UK. Outbreaks of rain are expected for northern and western areas, more persistent for parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland, although clearer, showery weather should follow for a time. It will be quite windy here too. Temperatures generally near or a little above normal. Into the following week, the north and west are likely to remain the windiest and most unsettled parts of the UK, with the best of the weather further south and east. However, a little rain is to be expected here at times. Temperatures should be a little above normal for most. This general northwest-southeast split in the weather is then likely to continue into the start of October.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 7 Oct 2014 to Tuesday 21 Oct 2014:

The broadly northwest-southeast split in weather conditions expected to become established for late September and early October is then showing signs of persisting into mid-October. This pattern would leave southern, central and eastern parts tending to see the best of the weather with conditions often fine and dry. Occasional bouts of rain should still be expected, and mist and fog patches may be a problem during morning rush hours but under fine weather it should feel pleasant. Further northwest, conditions are likely to be more unsettled with more frequent outbreaks of rain, perhaps accompanied by strong winds, temperatures here then often closer to average or perhaps even just below at times.

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.

The city’s location on the river Clyde made it a key settlement; as the centuries progressed and opportunities opened up, Following the Act of Union in the early 18th century which cemented relations with England, Glasgow developed into an incredibly wealthy city thanks to its status as a seaport town, trading goods all over the world; particularly with the Americas. Further inland development led not only to access to the mines of Lanarkshire, but to the sudden surge in shipbuilding companies — for which Glasgow remains industrially famous to this day.

The Glasgow postcode area elongates out from the city centre at its southernmost, taking in several county districts to the north and west such as Arrochar, Dumbarton and — at its furthest west — Helensburgh. Access from the city to western Scotland has been improved even further with the recent completion of the M74 motorway extension.

In 2012, around 95,000 people were drawn to the Merchant City Festival — an annual gathering showcasing the cream of the performing arts crop. Performers at this top-tier arts event are usually selected on the basis of previous appearances at other festivals throughout Glasgow such as the International Comedy Festival and the International Jazz Festival. Merchant City is, in itself, a prime location to suit all comers’ leisure and retail needs. With bars, restaurants and high-end boutiques, it has come to be known as the Cultural Quarter of Glasgow.

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 — in fact, King Tut’s is the venue where Oasis were discovered.

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 will also host the 2014 Commonwealth Games, with Hampden Park being converted into an athletics arena as some of the world’s leading athletes go for gold.
